Vancouver: Hawksworth NYE Dinner
Wow, what a year it has been, I can’t believe how fast it went by. So glad it’s over, though… no other way to celebrate than to put on a dress & drink champagne. Blessed this year we just chilled out, enjoyed dinner at home (which is Hawksworth) & attempted to catch the fireworks from our suite. Good food with good company, all I can ask for to end the year. xoxo
I’ve been anticipating to dine at Hawksworth for NYE quite some time now (thank you to Hawksworth for accommodating us so last minute). Booking a table at Hawksworth for NYE normally requires a few weeks notice & prepaid dinner.
This year the 7-course menu was priced menu -$220 pp with gratuity, excluding drinks and supplements. I am not going to bother consuming my time describing the food. I found everything to be rather mediocre besides the foie gras which was done very well, but we paid extra for that. I supplemented white truffles to my lobster, that was the only dish I fancied, then again, I paid extra for that too. Dessert was good. I was guessing for the price of dinner they would’ve done something for the guests at countdown (mind you by 12 pm there are only about 3 tables left) but nothing. We popped our own champagne and ran upstairs to catch the fireworks.
I am not a set menu person unless it’s chefs special and he personally delivers the feature dishes. The meal for NYE menu is seriously sub-par. I thought the meal lacked so much energy for that night. Highly recommend their a la carte menu. Service was amazing as always, I love when they notice small details such as when I leave to the washroom and coming back to a nicely folded napkin. Things like that are what sets the most restaurant apart from others.
