Mother’s Day at YEW Restaurant & Bar

She gave you the gift of life for starters. She’s kissed countless booboos, mended your socks, and that broken heart, and cheered for you at the crack of dawn too many times to count.  Quite simply, moms are awesome and irreplaceable.  Moms deserve to treated, loved and celebrated.  Every day, sure, but especially on Mother’s Day.

Sunday, May 13 give your mom something to brag about by treating her to YEW‘s fabulous Mother’s Day Brunch featuring a “Celebration of Seafood Raw Bar.”  In addition to everyone’s favourite brunch items, we’re also offering a delicious chilled seafood experience.  Click here to see the complete menu.

Be among the first to enjoy our amazing local BC Spot Prawns – served with Chimichurri & Romesco Sauces.  Dig in to our tasty selection of freshly shucked Oysters with Honey Pearls, Horseradish, Lemon and Mignonette,  delight in our King Crab Legs with Lime Aioli and savour some Wild Sockeye Salmon Gravlax.  Warm up at the Qualicum Bay Scallop action station served with seasonal Spring Pea and Pickled Ramp Gnocchi.  Yum.

Save some room for our Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlour featuring highly customized Sundaes N’ Floats with a heavenly array of ice cream and sorbet flavours and all kinds of devilishly tempting toppings and sauces.  The combinations are endless.  Double Chocolate Brownie ice cream topped with Raspberry Marshmallows and doused in Dolce De Leche?  Pistachio ice cream paired with Chocolate Brownies and smothered in Bacon Caramel sauce?  Or Strawberry sorbet, sprinkled with Candied Rose Petals and Yuzu sauce?  Don’t miss the Raspberry ‘Couture’ Eclair and Red Velvet Cupcakes.  Ooh la la!

Gift for Moms

Every guest in attendance will be treated to a seriously delicious brunch, complete with all the special touches and intuitive service that is Four Seasons legend.  Every mom will take home a copy of I Love You Forever. Who better to spread the love to and from moms everywhere than author of one of the world’s most popular children’s books, Robert Munch?  With over 20 million books sold, I Love You Forever is the story of a mother’s endless love for her child, making us all just a wee bit weepy and full of gratitude for dear old mom.

Feel even better about taking mom out to eat.  Partial proceeds of every brunch sold will go the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.  Brunch is $79 for adults and $35 for kids 12 and under.
