VANCOUVER — Evan Morgan has joined Yew Seafood + Bar as the new restaurant chef.
Along with developing menus and daily features at the restaurant, Morgan will work closely with the restaurant team and bring his intimate knowledge of B.C.’s local ingredients to the Yew kitchen. His food philosophy revolves around creatively highlighting the main ingredient of a meal using local and sustainable products.
“Food should be uncomplicated, interesting, delicious and beautiful, but at the same time, it’s still food and has to be sustaining and comforting. Beyond that, there are no rules,” says Morgan.
Morgan’s 16-year career began at Butchart Gardens in Victoria before working his way up the culinary ladder at notable restaurants such as Bluewater, Trace at The W Hotel in Seattle, Araxi and, most recently, the Stable House Bistro before taking on his current role at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver.
