Last week Andrew and I went to The Fairmont Empress to experience the Dine Around Victoria Menu that is offered until March 5th. It was a three courses menu including wine pairings with each course.

We started out with cocktails in the Q Bar, and I got the TRIPLE CROWN mezcal, passion fruit, mint, angostura bitters.

After we had finished our cocktails, we made our way to the restaurant and started out with the HOUSE BAKED RYE BREAD black olive tapenade and sweet butter paired with SALT SPRING ISLAND CHEESE local & artisanal, apricot jam, candied pecans and a toasted baguette.
