Please join the YEW seafood + bar team in congratulating Josef Weichinger to his well-deserved promotion as the restaurant’s General Manager. Josef’s smiling face will be a familiar one to guests as he has been with Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver since 2014 working as both Banquet Manager and YEW Restaurant Manager. Josef embodies the Four Seasons spirit, going that extra mile to exceed guest expectations and delivering memorable moments both big and small to our guests.
Josef loves the hospitality industry having grown up living and working in a hotel his family owned in Austria. During his travels to Canada, Josef fell in love with both the province of British Columbia, and his now wife Annie, whom he met while working at Sparkling Hills Resort in Vernon. Josef and Annie have two children and spend their downtime enjoying the great outdoors – an experience Josef likens to his childhood in the Alps.
Josef truly enjoys working with all the people that cross his path every day. He is a huge fan of Executive Chef Weimar Gomez’s sustainable seafood menus, teamed up with a delicious wine pick selected by YEW Sommelier Adam Mayhew. Josef is excited to put his stamp on YEW projects and is looking forward to adding energy to the bar program.
When Josef needs to hit the reset button, he does something many of us can only imagine. He jumps out of an airplane! Living truly in the moment of pure, heart-pumping adrenaline provides an exhilarating perspective on life and self.
