21 Steps Kitchen and Bar (Whistler 2015)
Since Sophie was with us, most of our Whistler get-a-way dining options were limited to outdoor/patio options. For one dinner, however, we decided to grab some takeout from 21 Steps Kitchen and Bar.
As you can guess from the name, the restaurant has a second floor location that overlooks the village. We started out with a Kale Salad ($9.50) which included shredded kale, beets, pink grapefruit, carrots, and toasted pumpkin seeds in a grapefruit citrus vinaigrette. The salad was okay – I especially liked the dressing. But it was a bit difficult picking up the shredded kale (and honestly, there’s just so much kale a person can eat).
The Buttermilk Fried Chicken ($10) was truly awesome! Drizzled with some honey, it was super crispy on the outside and still moist to the bite and served with a grainy dijon ranch sauce. Too bad this was just an appy.
For our main, we ordered the Boneless Short Rib ($26) braised in a Whiskey Jack Amber Ale and topped with crispy onions and accompanied with veggies and potatoes. Loved how fork-tender the meat was.
Mmm… I really have a hankering for fried chicken now!
