Notch8 – Datenight

Last week was a bit rough for me, as I was swamped with school work and mourning the death of a loved one. On Saturday, I decided to go on a date with one of my best friends just to get my mind off of all that. We did a little research, made a reservation and ended up at Notch8 Restaurant in the Fairmont hotel Vancouver.

The food was exquisite, the ambience was warm and welcoming, the service was good, there was live music; my evening was made!
I found the menu really interesting because of the way the meals were named. I had a fun time guessing what the food could actually be, based on the given name.

Towards the end of dinner, I noticed this small room in the corner and was so curious to find out what it was used for. From my seat, I could see an old fashion red telephone booth, one of Britains cultural icons and I had to take a picture of it and in it.
The room looked like England, and then I realized that it’s the afternoon tea room. I learned that the room was only designed that way seasonally, from April 2nd to September 3rd. I will definitely be back here for afternoon tea.
