Sure, the warm fuzzies of Valentine’s Day may have faded, but for Vancouver Elites, pink- and woodsy-themed parties kindled some serious love. Hosted by the swanky YEW restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel, yelpers were treated to two intimate parties (45 guests each) of pure pampered pleasure.
Between the charming, friendly staff and the cornucopia of treats, Elites were kept deliciously entertained. Lucky for us, JBSP Photography, Christine McAvoy and our own Larry L were there to capture it all on film. See our Yelp Flickr page for more fab photos.
Our savoury smorgasboard included freshly shucked oysters, local artisan cheeses, duck rolls, lobster balls, salmon tartare with quail eggs, as well as truffled comforts such as mac n’ cheese, gnocchi and porcini mushroom soup. Vanessa G sums it up nicely: “if I had to choose my last meal on earth it probably would have been everything we ate.”
Saccharine delicacies bedecked the dessert table—each a miniature masterpiece. Mango ‘ravioli’ shooters, espresso-caramel crème brulee, strawberry crème cups and handmade truffle lollipops kept sweet-toothed guests grinning from ear to ear.
Happily buzzed, elites sipped on a plethora of delish drinks such as wines from Masi, Monmousseau and a brand new sparkling by Mission Hill that hasn’t been released yet! Molson M provided their micro-carbonated brew while YEW's award-winning bartender created cocktails such as pink sidecars and negronis made with Campari and Hendricks.
From pretty-in-pink peeps to lumberjacks in full uniform, everyone had a dashing good time with the friendliest group in Vancouver! The pleasant reunion was well matched by the warmth of the Yew staff who ensured that we were sufficiently spoiled all evening long.
All in all it was a smashing success with new friendships and tummies happily expanded. Click here to see event reviews or to add your own.
Can’t wait to see YEW all at the next exciting event!
