The hotel's signature restaurant is Fifty Two 80 Bistro & Bar, named for the vertical drop you can ski on Blackcomb Mountain. It has a "fire and ice" theme, with the fire motif emanating from the walls in the main dining area that are aglow from the central fireplace, and the cold seafood counter in the bar representing the frigid ice.
There's an a la carte menu for breakfast featuring homemade granola with yogurt and poached eggs. Or, go for broke and choose the buffet. Fresh fruit, cereal, pastries, smoked salmon, cheeses, eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes and roasted potatoes are all offered. Dinner takes advantage of British Columbia's bounty of seafood and cattle to offer seared ahi tuna or wild boar prosciutto as appetizers, the delectable black cod and rack of lamb for entrees. You'll find a kids menu featuring the usual assortment of burger and fries, mac and cheese, and quesadillas. In summer, sit outside on the patio and peer up at the peaks.
For casual fare in the Town Plaza, try Caramba. Kids will enjoy the pizzas and macaroni smothered in three cheeses, while mom and dad can devour a plate of their signature dish, grilled calamari. Also in town, Elements is a popular breakfast joint, known for their eggs benedict and veggie-strewn frittatas, all washed down with mammoth-sized cups of coffee.
