Summary: A bright, plant-filled dining oasis.

BOTANIST, nestled in the Fairmont Pacific Rim, is a breath of fresh air in the restaurant scene, offering a botanical haven that transcends the typical hotel bar experience. The space is bathed in natural light, highlighting the polished marble, glinting brass, and an array of over 50 plant varieties that bring life to the restaurant's modern dining room. The establishment takes pride in representing the essence of the Pacific Northwest with a menu that marries inventive dishes with a touch of whimsy. The cocktail list is equally creative, featuring playful concoctions such as the Rye 'n' Reynolds, along with classics like The Botanist Martini, elevated with coastal gin and vegan caviar. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame engaging city views, while the open kitchen offers an alternative spectacle, with chefs crafting culinary delights like olive oil poached halibut and lamb rack with puffed grains.

The journey to this gastronomic oasis begins in the hotel's grand lobby, ascending a majestic staircase that sets the tone for an experience where dressing to impress is part of the allure.
