The name of our fine dining restaurant at Sparkling Hill Resort, PeakFine, has been adapted from a European term, “piekfein”, meaning ”the best”. Adding our own twist, “peak” represents our location on top of a hill and “fine” respects the finest and freshest locally sourced ingredients that go into all our dishes. Quickly becoming a favourite among Vernon, BC restaurants and headed by Executive Chef Romaine Newell, our hotel restaurant serves breakfast and lunch with the highlight being a superb three-course dinner with recommended wine pairings. All are to be enjoyed in a luminous surrounding of Swarovski crystals, positioned to catch the sunlight reflecting from the water of Lake Okanagan.
Executive Chef & Vision
Executive Chef Romaine Newell believes it is easy to copy dishes but the true art of a chef is creating a unique dish that represents your ability to merge flavors and substance together for a succulent experience. From his roots in Jamaica to Thailand, across Canada from Toronto to Saskatchewan and currently British Columbia, Chef Romaine Newell has a touch of essence in his dishes that fuse bold flavour into a healthy, well rounded and flavorful dish. He tries to showcase that nothing in cuisine is based on one world, it is a dynamic industry that is forever evolving, expanding and changing. Chef Romaine Newell strives to keep dishes consistent, healthy and innovative, while exploring all that the local produce of the Okanagan has to offer.
With lighter fare to keep you going throughout the day, our lunch menu offerings will tempt your palate with delicious salads, soups and flavourful mains. With a couple of dessert options for a boost in the middle of your day, you will definitely look forward to lunch at PeakFine.
Dinner & Dessert Menu
The star of the show - our three course dinner - is a staple in our packages to ensure guests enjoy the bounty of the Okanagan. Through all three courses, the finest local ingredients are showcased in the artistry of Executive Chef Romaine Newell and his team. When desserts fuse together so many fresh, wholesome ingredients, it’s ok to indulge a bit.
Known as the “Napa of the North”, the Okanagan Valley is a celebrated wine region and Sparkling Hill Resort is proud to serve a wide selection of wines from our local region as well as imported bottles. Our staff would be delighted to recommend the best wine to compliment your meal or follow the advice on our pairing menu.
