The word "yew," which was taken from an indigenous tree in British Columbia, gives nothing away about Yew Seafood and Bar’s menu, except to tell you it’s local. We’ll add that Yew is a seasonal seafood restaurant that makes heavy use of the bounty provided in the waters of the Pacific Northwest. You can begin your meal with a selection from the raw bar such as freshly shucked oysters or Albacore tuna and move into shellfish like the Dungeness crab or steamed mussels. Organic steelhead is a B.C. specialty on the fish list, and you’ll find staples like chowder and bouillabaisse as well. You can mix some land in with your sea in the form of scallops and bacon, or the beef and crab, or forego animals entirely for the vegan menu. The dessert options are a mix of creative elements like carrot cake ice cream and classic nods like warm fruit cobbler.
