Dine and unwind at YEW restaurant + bar, with its West Coast urban vibe that feels both cool and inviting – a rare combination. Its dynamic ambience, creative menu and highly experienced and attentive staff, have made YEW a city favourite every day of the year. Named for the rare indigenous Pacific Yew tree, YEW restaurant + bar provides an ideal escape in the heart of the city.
With large windows and skylights, lustrous wood and natural rock, YEW brings together the most beautiful elements of nature in a clean, contemporary style. The menu represents the broad culinary vision of Executive Chef Oliver Beckert by including ingredients from the entire Pacific region.
Designed to capture the essence of British Columbia’s natural environment, lofty 40-foot ceilings reach to the sky, while wood-panelled walls and a floor-to-ceiling sandstone fireplace emanate warmth and comfort. The very contemporary “raw bar” features stacked alder wood with granite surfaces. YEW’s unique communal table for fourteen is created from a slab of hand hewn western maple from Vancouver Island. Or for a more intimate experience, guests can dine in a glass enclosed Private Dining Room for ten, under a vast sky light located in the center of the room.
“The physical design of the restaurant combines sophisticated urban with the natural beauty of British Columbia,” says Executive Chef Oliver Beckert, “so we wanted a menu that was consistent with that vision. The food we have chosen to include is sophisticated and dramatic. We don’t want to overpower the palate, but we want to stimulate it. Our focus is on the integrity of flavour. We allow the food to speak for itself.”
YEW restaurant + bar is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails and is ideal for both personal and business occasions.
