Kelowna is a hotbed of culinary talent. Many of the young chefs (seems that youth is a prerequisite) have arrived from across Canada. Because the city is at the heart of the wine industry, it was just a matter of time before a chef with sommelier credentials would land in the valley.
In 2004, Chef/Sommelier Mark Filatow opened his intimate Waterfront Wines Restaurant. Up till then Mark had honed his culinary skills at some of the most prestigious restaurants in BC including Wickaninnish Inn, Vancouver’s Bishops and Kelowna’s Fresco Restaurant, now RauDZ Regional Table.
Mark is a brilliant chef — he’ll pot-steam a sablefish filet and serve it with a local corn fritter and a leek and Saltspring Island mussel chowder. He serves his peppercorn-crusted flat iron steak with a Bordelaise sauce and buttery fork-mashed potatoes and each Thursday night the team spit roasts local, naturally-raised meats. In every case Chef Filatow can tell you exactly which wine will make your tastebuds dance with joy.
Waterfront Wines Restaurant has garnered Awards of Excellence from the Wine Spectator every year since 2006 and had successive wins as the Best Okanagan Restaurant in the Vancouver Magazine Awards. This is a major accomplishment since the Okanagan has a cadre of some of the best chefs on the continent. However, if you read the Food Day Canada menus as they appear annually, you’ll understand why. They are sleek and you can almost hear the chef thinking…”How much fun can I have with this..?”Waterfront Wine Food Day Canada 2019 sarah approved copy
