Restaurant 62, Abbotsford BC Date Night
Comments Off on Date Night at Restaurant 62

Date night does not happen near enough for my husband and I. We have tried to set up a monthly routine of where we take each other out and alternate months on who gets to choose where we go, but it hasn’t happen for a while. I’ll blame that on the baby. When we were invited for our night out we were beyond thrilled, not just for the time together, but we knew that our Restaurant 62 date night was going involve some amazingly delicious food.

As we entered the restaurant we were greeted immediately and shown to our table. The lighting in the restaurant is dim, setting a romantic and intimate tone for the evening. Neither myself or my husband had visited Restaurant 62 in the past, we had only previously heard such good things.

Before my husband and I were married I worked for seven years in the restaurant industry. Because of that background I feel that my expectations for a great dining experience are high. When our first glass of wine was poured, the waiter explained to us about how it was made and the different flavours that we were about to enjoy. This continued as each new wine pairing was introduced with each new course. The knowledge the server shared and how each wine was perfectly paired was above and beyond my expectations.

Over the course of the evening we got to try 4 different dishes; three courses and a dessert. The names of the dishes came from the local farms that their main ingredients were grown on. Guess what else they have in common, they farms are all local! From the Mt.Lehman goat chevre to the Giesbrecht pork and Popkum rabbit wellington we covered three farms in just the names of our three course.

As each course came out the owners, Chefs Matthew Nichols and Jeff Massey, came to share a story behind the dish. They shared about how depending on what is in season, would depend on what is on their menu at any given time. Just that day they had a local supplier drop of fresh ingredients, the first of it’s crop this year, and they incorporated that into our dish. With their talent it is no surprise to me that they are the longest standing fine dining restaurant in the history of the Fraser Valley.

At the end of the night I even found out that their menus are printed at a local print shop in Abbotsford. That is ultimate local love right there. So the next time that you are thinking about going out for the night and want to see that you money is well spent. Know that when you dine at Restaurant 62 you are supporting their business, yes, but also handfuls of other local businesses who are represented within it.

  • When you aren't wearing make up how do you feel? Honestly, does it feel good and fresh or do you feel like you aren't put together? A few weeks ago I picked up my daughter from preschool and was feeling insecure about the fact that I wasn't wearing makeup, I wondered what other moms were going to think. As the thought passed through my mind I had a laugh that I even dwelled on it. I reminded myself that I don't care what others think of me. I'm confident in who I am and some days I just don't have time for makeup.
