The 112 Restaurant and Lounge has been serving up classic elegance with a side of winter adventure for 35 years, catering to Canadian Mountain Holidays, a well known heli-ski operation for almost as long. But as the winds of change sweep through this small, mountain town, so do they through the 112.
Slick new hardwood floors, walls clad in perfectly aged brickwork and charcoal grey paint give the dining room and lounge a modern, contemporary feel. A polished granite bar, funky hand-carved furniture and a floor to ceiling wine rack separating the dining area from the bar make this the sort of place that young locals linger late into the evening savouring locally brewed Mount Begbie beer and eating appetizers like Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna with Wasabi Aioli or Seared Scallops in Lime Caramel. For the larger appetite after a hard day skiing, the hefty handmade beef and blue cheese burger might be just the thing.
Despite the dining room’s shiny new look, old classics never die. Alongside creative, new fare, the culinary team at the 112 are still serving up the old favorites like Dijon Crusted Rack of Lamb and Chicken Cordon Bleu. And for the seafood lover, a steaming bowl of Cioppino simmered gently in a broth of tomato, fennel and saffron warms the bones on a chilly, winter evening.
There is, perhaps, a local singer belting out tunes from the small stage set up in the corner, or maybe just quiet funky music playing and a muted hockey game underway on the flat screen TV above the bar. Outside, huge snowflakes quietly drift down carpeting the town in a soft, white blanket.
For a touch of elegance in the heart of historic downtown Revelstoke, whether it be for a three course meal or just some tasty appetizers with a casual cocktail, the 112 Restaurant & Lounge welcomes you.
