LOCAL SUPPLIERS
Boulevard’s close proximity to the Pacific Ocean, Okanagan wine country and nearby farms, fisheries and ranches aligns with one of Executive Chef Alex Chen’s key culinary principles: to use the best locally sourced, farm fresh ingredients. To that end, Boulevard is proud to source a number of its products from the following local suppliers, among others.

Barnston Island Herbs:
A 100% local family business with farms located in Surrey, Barnston Island Herbs has sustainably grown and supplied the best herbs, greens and specialty product to B.C.’s top restaurants and hotels since 1979.

North Arm Farm:
A 60-acre, family run and working organic farm in Pemberton, North Arm Farm produces a full selection of seasonal vegetable as well as strawberries, raspberries and blueberries and sources a wide range of fruit from the Okanagan. North Arm practices organic methodology and grows its crops following standards adopted by the Pacific Agriculture Certification Society, which is a member of the Certified Organic Association of B.C.

Cherry Lane Farm:
A family owned and operated farm that has been located in Richmond since the early 1950s, Cherry Lane grows some of the largest varieties of tree fruit such as Italian plums, heritage apples and cherries, white and red wine grapes, black mulberries and Bosc and Anjou pears, as well as an array of vegetable crops all produced without the use of synthetic chemicals or genetically modified seeds.

Pacific Provider Salmon:
Owned and operated by a North Vancouver fishing family, the Pacific Provider is a 43-foot fishing boat that travels through the waters around the Queen Charlotte Islands in search of the best catch and using only the most sustainable fishing methods. Pacific Provider is Ocean Wise certified and trolls with barbless hooks and line designed specifically for Coho salmon, eliminating the risk of endangering other fish, birds and marine mammals and of damaging the ocean floor. 

Sawmill Bay Shellfish Company:
An Ocean Wise certified, family-run farm located in the pristine, glacier-fed waters off Read Island, B.C., Sawmill Bay produces oysters, clams, mussels and scallops that are delivered within 24 hours of harvesting. Sawmill Bay is also in a remote location away from human habitation, which helps provide a clean and pollution-free environment for its harvests.

Mikuni Wild Harvest:
Mikuni Wild Harvest, the exclusive supplier of Boulevard’s wasabi, provides an abundance of richly flavoured foods found exclusively in the wild. Since 2001, Mikuni has focused on developing a boutique line of sustainable wild foods for restaurants and gourmet retail outlets.

Extreme Luxury and The Ultimate Valentine’s Package Equals Perfect Romance

???????????????????????While women are running around trying to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, men too are looking to find a cute and sweet gift for their beloved.

Finding Valentine’s Day gifts shouldn’t be a difficult task because really, most women just want a thoughtful, meaningful gift and maybe some flowers. (and a nice dinner and dessert!) See? Easy!

But if you really have no idea what to get your loved one for V-Day, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

There’s never been an easier way to say “I love you” than with The Sutton Place Hotels’ ‘Once In A Lifetime’ Package. Forget the heart-shaped box filled with chocolates. This package contains Dom Pérignon, a Maserati, and a $100,000 shopping spree at Holt Renfrew.  What’s not to love?

The ‘Once In A Lifetime’ Package was designed to showcase everything passionate that Valentine’s Day has to offer and is available for a mere $500,000. The romance begins right away with door-to-door limo service. Upon arrival at the hotel, the lovers will be whisked away to the Presidential Suite, where they will be served a bottle of Dom Pérignon and hors d’oeuvres. As the couple relaxes with their bubbly, a white-gloved butler will ensure their glasses are never empty and will proceed to serve the couple for the next 24 hours. A six-course candlelit dinner with paired premium wines will then be prepared by a Private Chef in a private dining room. But the romance does not end when dinner does. In the morning, a champagne breakfast will be served in bed while the couple lounges in their personalized monogrammed Frette terry robes. A helicopter will then take the couple on a private scenic tour of the city that is sure to leave them breathless. To complement the hotel experience, the package keeps giving:  a private $100,000 Holt Renfrew shopping spree, a personalized Maserati, $50,000 worth of diamonds and fine jewelry, weekly couple’s massages, and fresh flowers delivered weekly to the couple’s home.
