Four Seasons of Yew

Have you heard? Yew Restaurant at the Four Seasons is now a seafood restaurant! I was one of the lucky many who got to attend the reopening on Wednesday evening. After being treated to a fête of oysters, tuna tartare, and an entire table of salmon "snacks," my taste buds are still reminiscing today. Of course, I had to stay true to myself and down some cocktails throughout the evening, a sure cure for my reticence. The dessert table was off-limits (hello, lactose intolerance!), but the pastry chefs offered me some delectable vegan cookies instead. When I wasn't busy chewing, I managed to meet and mingle with food writers and fellow gourmets, thus completing Yew's new tagline: Modern. Coastal. Social. Social, indeed!

Salmon on the rocks.

Shipwrecked had a hint of jalapeño .
There's nothing like a freshly shucked oyster.
What a swell party this is!

Looks like SUCH a fun night. I have been starring at those marshmallow/milk things, and I can't quite figure out what it is, but it looks AMAZING.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and your lovely comments. Marks and Spencer is a fairly traditional high street store in the UK catering for all ages and it is strong on classic designs and big on quality. Virtually every woman in the UK swears by their underwear. I think Kate did/does shop there.
What a great nght out and I love the red and yellow look.
