A 2009 summer visit with our two college-age sons from Northern California brought us to the Rim Rock Cafe, outside of Whistler Village. Three-course meals all around accompanied by a fine bottle of Canadian Chardonnay. Gnocci at $4 per bite? $18 for a miniature beet salad? Both were wonderful, according to my wife, but nowhere near Bouchon quality for the price. My carpaccio, scallops and the mixed grill were all perfectly prepared and presented. One son with lobster bisque, crab cakes and beef filet loved everything. Salty-smoked lamb second course and chewy duck main course for our older son were both wierd preparations. Including our tip, the $360 we spent at Rim Rock felt about $100 out-of-line against other fine-dining meals at Whistler.
