Thank you @yam_magazine for the wonderful acknowledgment of our Wild Mountain community. It’s been very validating to hear from so many colleagues and guests that these honours are well deserved. To be completely transparent, we don’t really think restaurants can be compared. Each one is such a unique reflection of the people who make and serve the food. Every restaurant is a microcosm of its community and its flavours. We need all different kinds of restaurants to be all different kinds of places. So we really see this as an acknowledgment that we are doing our gosh darn best. That we are the best versions of ourselves that we can be. And that we have created something that has resonated with all of you. And that means the world to us.
Wild Mountain would not exist without the staff that keeps this mini beast alive. Nurtured since September of 2015 by our incredible Sous Chef Scooty and his partner who gives our food a place to shine @wickedwandapottery
It takes an incredible effort to make everything in-house from scratch, and joining Chefs Oliver and Scooty are Chef de Cuisine Teves @rulkanbetty Fire Chef Max @popgrimes and two new and integral additions Chefs Sunny and Lucan. We’ve been so lucky to work with so many talented chefs over the years.
We are so grateful to have worked with such a fantastic mix of people in the front of house over the years. We miss so many of you! If you’ve been in lately then you’ve no doubt been sipping delicious cocktails by Emily @emsuthwhateva and served by a dynamic team of the loveliest people led by our FOH manager Nathan. Thank you for spending time with us: @margauxbpottery @clesire Isabelle, Charlotte, Lily and Natalia. With support from two champion teens: Taylor out front and Myah rocking the pit.
It was so special to share this night with Producer of the Year @saanichorganics which is also Robin and Sasha from Metchosin’s @seablufffarm who supply the restaurant year round with an incredible array of fruits and vegetables.
Thank you for capturing our spirit and mission with your words Cinda @tastereporter and for your beautiful photos @jeffreybosdet and art direction @dancingrabbitdesigns
