Taste the Olympic Spirit - YEW Restaurant + Bar Introduces a February Full of Fresh, Fun Flavours / by Granville Street

Oh Canada! The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games have taken over the city and YEW restaurant + bar (Georgia at Granville) is celebrating with some fresh and fun new dishes. YEW restaurant + bar has created an entire calendar of food and beverage inspirations.

Bring your appetite, or four or five friends to help you dive into our one pound Olympic Burger, this one has to be seen to be believed. Boasting a very generous serving of Kobe and Alberta Beef, Sautéed Chanterelle Mushrooms, Double Smoked Canadian Tyroler Bacon, Tomato Chili Jam and Agassiz Farmhouse Cheddar all nestled between the buttery Brioche bun. A side of crunchy Yam fries completes the dish.

Inspired by the five famous interlocked rings the Olympic Salad has it all. A healthy, energizing combination of veggies, protein, carbohydrates, color and crunch all tossed in a vitamin loaded dressing made with fresh orange juice, yuzu and ginger. It's a salad made up entirely of rings - Grilled Squid, Leek, Anelli Pasta, Radish, Green Onions Olives and Crispy Shallot Rings.
