The award-winning Yew Restaurant + Bar at the Four Seasons in Vancouver is now YEW seafood + bar with a rebranding that launched this week. The seafood concept is a permanent change, helping the restaurant deliver the best sustainable seafood dining experience possible.
The YEW team began a journey to deliver a restaurant experience that our guests, and food lovers in general, really wanted. Research told us that our guests liked seafood – over 70 percent of you ordered it – and that you preferred a certain kind of dining experience – approachable yet seamless. With the needs and wants of our guests in mind, YEW has evolved into one of the city’s very best seafood restaurants over the past 21 months. [Source: Press Release]
Yew’s modern and social dining room with communal table options make it a favourite after-work destination for a sip of the Okanagan’s finest wines and the coast’s freshest oysters. Looking at the menu, starting from the top down, I know I’m immediately hooked with dishes like Albacore Tuna (with grapefruit and ginger, soy and mustard vinaigrette), Wild Salmon (with papaya and peanut salad, Thai vinaigrette), and Halibut Ceviche (with corn, avocado, jalapeno, and crispy corn chips) — and those are just the raw starter options.
Shellfish, fish to share, main courses with fish, and a selection of non-fish items (salads, chicken, beef, quinoa) round out the rest of the dinner menu. Other menus include breakfast, brunch, lunch, vegan lunch, vegan dinner, dessert, coffee bar, cocktails, and wines.
They also have special event/occasion menus and prix-fixe dining options like the upcoming Father’s Day Brunch.
