Botanist Set inside the stylish Fairmont Pacific Rim, Botanist celebrates the abundant sea, soil, and culinary imagination of the Pacific Northwest. In addition to a glass-walled garden with more than 50 plant species, the restaurant features a bar, a champagne room, and a cocktail lab. Start your visit with innovative drinks like the Deep Cove (Island Spirits gin and sea buckthorn) and the Candy Cap Magic (mushroom rye, vermouth, and spiced maple, served atop a bed of moss in a terrarium fogged with dry ice—just one of the spectacular custom goblets here). Then, move on to a mouthwatering meal that could include pan-seared scallops with green apple, or roasted Wagyu with celeriac and nettles. Even the snacks have style, ranging from house-marinated olives to spicy merguez lamb sausage with pickled cauliflower.
