Yew Restaurant and Bar
791 West Georgia St., Vancouver
Nowadays, brunch has become the favourite meal for family gathering. Why is that so, the reason is simple, everyone has plans for the weekend and they typically are in the afternoon till well into the nights. Therefore, it's only natural for families to gather during daytime on the weekends, thus nothing works better than brunch. In fact, I think dim sum would be Chinese people's brunch. :P
I loved their high ceilings, beautiful lanterns light with the shadowy branches and their modern cozy fire place. We arrive right when it opened for their weekend brunch starting at 11:30am, and the place was already filled with lots of families (see theory in intro).
Beignets with organic strawberries and vanilla cream. Essentially it like a cream puffy, except the puff was actually a crunchy donut. Regardless of taste or presentation, the dessert just didn't live up to its fancy name.
Despite the impressive décor, the food was average. Service was also not what I expected. Our waitress's nonchalant manner was off-putting. She rarely came by, even when we were done and ready to pay. Either way, if you need a restaurant to impress, then this is it. Other wise, I would go else where.
