  • Epic Restaurant
    The buzz surrounding the Fairmont Royal York doesn't just come from reporters or bloggers. It comes from the bees?as many as 350,000 of them?that reside in six carefully managed hives in the hotel's rooftop garden. Every year, beekeepers here harvest an average of 450 pounds of honey, some of which ends up a few floors down in the kitchen of Epic Restaurant. There, sustainability-conscious chefs bake the sweet local syrup into pastries and drizzle it onto artisanal cheese plates, a testament to their commitment to eating locally. That commitment doesn't stop with honey. From organic chicken raised at nearby Yorkshire Valley Farms to ramps foraged in the Ontario woods, most of the savory ingredients on Epic Restaurant's seasonal menus are sourced from within 100 kilometers of the hotel. Some herbs, such as the chili that flavored a recent seafood pasta, are also harvested from the rooftop. The chefs attend to ocean sustainability by using seafood approved by the Vancouver Aquarium's Ocean Wise program, including Vancouver Island spot prawns, Atlantic halibut, and Nova Scotia sea bream.

  • Three Monkeys
    Three Monkeys Eatery pours out culinary quenchers with 17 beers on tap and an extensive menu of hearty pub fare. Esophagi get pre-meal pep-talks from appetizers, including breaded shrimp served with sweet chili sauce ($8.99) and cream cheese-stuffed jalapeno poppers accompanied by salsa ($7.89). Test the bounds of gastronomic capacity with the kilo burger ($28.99): if one eater polishes off the burger beast and its trimmings in 90 minutes, it's free, unless he fails to answer the riddle of the sub-pub sphinx. Less ravenous sandwich samplers can revel in the slow-roasted tenderness of barbecue pulled pork ($10.99) or a classic pub club ($8.99). Strip steaks, pizzas, pastas, and desserts round out the bill of fare, while traditional British dishes such as shepherd's pie ($9.99) and bangers, beans, and mash ($8.99) recall the original pubs of England, which made their way across the Atlantic atop particularly buoyant cobblestone-lined ships.

  • Fire on the East Side
    Fire on the East Side's Head Chef Quincey Tysdale summons fresh, seasonal ingredients to patrol a menu of soulful, southern-inspired fare. Taste buds seeking flavour jolts can sample the Louisiana-style jambalaya, a mélange of saltwater junkies such as crab and mussels splashing alongside meaty sausage in a spicy red-chili sauce. Meanwhile, mixed baby greens fill herbivores with chlorophyll quotas ($10), and Le Famous meatloaf solves appetite conundrums by way of algebraic proofs and a hand-ground, triple-A tenderloin wrapped in bacon, smothered in red gravy, and accompanied by a smoked-bacon-shallot hash ($23). A diverse wine list offers vinos by the glass, including reds ($7–$13), whites ($7–$12), and fizzies ($8). While guests inhale uninhibited oxygen on the outdoor patio, stark colour contrasts, a demurely lit dining space, and sleek wooden tables dress Fire on the East Side's interior in comfortable, modern shades, akin to a bubble-bath screen saver.
