Take it outside! H Tasting Lounge at the Westin Bayshore has unveiled its glam new patio alongside fresh food and cocktail menus.
The 1,765-square-foot space includes a stunning fireplace feature, breathtaking views of water and mountains and a menu to match. Nosh on chilled and raw seafood (prawns, mussels, clams), a daily oyster fresh sheet, carpaccios and tartares, Niçoise and wedge salads and savoury tartines, all spotlighting ingredients from local suppliers.
Parched? Round out your meal or light bite with a bold Opportune Moment stirred cocktail (rum, brandy, sherry, smoke, bitters). Driving? Try a booze-free Rolling Uphill (mountain berry tea, coconut, lime, soda). —Noa Nichol
