Weekend brunch at YEW has long been a favourite place to gather to enjoy sustainable seafood focused fare and sip mimosas. With a recently revamped weekend brunch menu, there are plenty of new items to try, and beginning May 4th, diners can add $20 to any entrée and receive an appetizer, a dessert, and coffee or juice. Sweet, savoury or a bit of both, this promotion allows guests to enjoy a full spread of offerings from YEW’s brunch menu.
Restaurant Chef Evan Morgan’s new brunch offerings present international flavours and influences and celebrate plenty of Pacific Northwest ingredients. Appetizers include healthy options like Housemade Granola Parfait or Blueberry Muesli. YEW’s famous Clam + Crab Chowder is available for seafood lovers, and for those in it for the sweets there’s the chocolate Gluten Free Pancakes with banana and peanut butter powder.
New entrée stars include a Crab Hash, loaded with sweet Dungeness crab, spicy nduja sausage and topped with a mornay sauce. The Smoked Salmon + Avo Toast is anything but your average avocado toast, and delivers smoked and candied salmon atop a decadent avocado cream cheese and a 63° poached egg. Combining Asian and southern influences, the new Crispy Soft Shell Crab “Po’ Boy” is served on a fresh baguette with wasabi mayo and a zesty sesame lime slaw, presenting a perfect balance of flavours and plenty of crunch.
Guests can complete their three-course brunch on a sweet note with one of Executive Pasty Chef Suraj Karmakar’s innovative desserts. Chef Karmakar enjoys delivering surprises in his dishes and there are plenty in his current line-up. Options include the refreshing Pineapple Carpaccio, featuring thinly sliced pineapple marinated overnight with pink peppercorn and caramelized rosemary and accompanied with crème fraîche sorbet. Those needing a bolt of java before resuming the rest of their weekend will enjoy the Iced Cappuccino with decadent layers of coffee cream, milk ice cream, roasted almond crumble and Suntory 18 year whiskey foam.
Coffee lovers can also toast to YEW’s new signature brunch cocktail; Back to the Future is a creamy cold brew coffee combining Amarula, Amaretto and Fernet Branca, topped with whipped cream and coffee jelly. YEW’s buzzing brunch atmosphere and approachable menu is great for families, groups and couples. Expect legendary Four Seasons service accompanied by innovative menu options. Brunch is served weekends from 11:30am until 2:30pm.
