At the first signs of spring, our thoughts drift to sitting lakeside on a warm patio and sipping a glass of Okanagan rosé.  By boat or by land, drop into The Cove’s Bonfire Grill in West Kelowna to get your spring fix.  It shouldn’t be long now!  Indoor or out, Executive Chef Grant de Montreuil serves up a delicious welcome.  

The Bonfire Grill’s new Restaurant Manager Brad Unrau and Chef de Montreuil are feeling great about their team.  Unrau comes to the Okanagan via Vancouver, where he spent two decades in food and beverage, specializing in fine dining and bistro restaurants.
“From families to fine dining, we deliver an upscale dining experience in a comfortable setting that showcases our commitment to excellence,” says Unrau.  

There’s lots to watch for this spring and summer.  Beginning on Easter Sunday, the Bonfire Grill will reintroduce their popular weekly Sunday Brunch buffet. They also feature a sumptuous deal every night with their 5-course tasting dinner.  

“This is not an appie tasting.  It’s a full meal and nobody goes away hungry!  We launch a new menu every Friday night.  It’s $50 for the dinner and an additional $25 with wine,” says de Montreuil.

Chef Grant de Montreuil is one of Kelowna’s original supporters of local produce and goods, and their spring menu showcases a great variety of sustainable local products.  About 70 % of their wine list features Okanagan wines and they also carry a selection of craft beers.   

Watch for the announcement of the Bonfire Grill’s upcoming Winemaker’s Dinners, as well as some great themed beach parties with dinner and live music this summer.  

In the meantime, The Cove is offering some amazing spring packages for your own getaway, or as a great spot for your visitors.
