The award-winning restaurant inside the Fairmont Pacific Rim recently launched their new Brunch Punch menu. For $62 you can slide into their peaches-and-dreams upper-floor greenery-draped dining room, be handed a glass of bubbly, then sit down to enjoy two course of elegant eats with a delicious boozy (or non-boozy) punch cocktail. We suggest their signature Hand-Cut Beef Tartare for a starter, and either a Benny or the pancakes for your main. Cheers!
