Pique - Best of Whistler 2009
Voted #1 Best Sushi, Voted 2nd for coolest staff

Nov.23, 2009 - Outside Magazine
"I'd compare it to Verbier but nothing in North America. I moved here out of high school. We'd follow the pro skiers and see them smashing bottles. Whistler has a lot of nudity. There used to be more, but it still happens—go to Merlin's for après and girls may be dancing on the barstools topless. On a powder day we'll ski Blackcomb then go to Merlin's for beers and nachos. Then we'll go to Sushi Village with our ski boots on. After that, you hit one of the nightclubs—Tommy Africa's, Maxx Fish, Garfinkels. But I don't go out as much as I used to. I'm a professional athlete. HOT TIP There are rumors that during the Olympics the Jamaican bobsled team is going to throw parties with reggae bands at their house. [Editor's note: This is true.] I'm going to try to be there."

"It may strike some as a little strange that in a mountain town the top two restaurants, as voted by locals, specialize in fish. Of course Sushi Village, which was the top vote getter, and the Rimrock Café are about more than fish but voters definitely have a taste for fish, as Sushi Ya and Monk McQueen's also earned a number of votes. Uli’s Flipside finished third."
