Dining

RauDZ Rengional Table offers a unique experience when it comes to dining out. This pristine establishment is housed in a heritage structure that is 106 years old. This eatery focuses on bringing people together, as the art of communication and talking has been lost among our digitized world.

There is a stunning 21 foot long table, which is met for people to gather and engage in conversation. This table is a focal point of the restaurant, as it is beautifully crafted from pine. The base of the table will make you think of the Kettle Valley trestles. It is not put together with nails or screws. It is put together with mortise, dowels and tenons. Will Brundula was the artist whom constructed this masterpiece.
