Restaurant Review: H2 Rotisserie & Bar

By Sherman Chan,
Special to The Post


The Shout a Little Chowda Seafood Chowder was creamy, but not heavy. It had local west coast clams and mussels, prawns, salmon and baby scallop, which made it hearty and filling. The Beef Carpaccio consisted of hand sliced paper thin certified Angus Beef tenderloin, Barnston Island micro arugula, truffle oil, maldon salt and parmesan. The meat was buttery melt-in-my-mouth tender. The truffle oil added a complimentary earthiness without being overwhelming. However, there needed to be an aioli to add moisture.

The Quarter Rotisserie Chicken with herb-roasted fingerling potatoes and grilled asparagus had a beautifully rendered skin. The chicken was moist and aromatic. The gravy was nicely seasoned. The Hot Jill Meats Huckleberry B.C. Bison Burger consisted of a 6 oz. grass fed pasture raised BC bison, huckleberry relish, Little Qualicum hot jill monterey cheddar, crisp barnston island red frill lettuce and garlic aioli served on an artisan challah bun. It was a beautiful medium-rare: juicy and tender, but not too gamey. This was my favourite burger.

The 9 oz Angus Beef Striploin was prepared so it was still juicy. However, the outside could've been charred more aggressively. The steak was intentionally under-seasoned so we could customize the seasoning with the accompanying chimichurri, merlot reduction, smoked sea salt, sea salt, mustard, balsamic mustard and honey mustard.

The No One Does it Better Layered Carrot Cake looked sweet, but it was balanced with plenty of spice. The Drop it Like it's Popped, Salted Caramel Popcorn Cheesecake was surprisingly light for a baked version. It was purposefully sweet and cheesy while accented by a caramel sauce and a salted caramel popcorn ball. These were a nice end to a relatively good meal. H2 has become a trendy place to hang out.
