VANCOUVER — Toptable Group celebrated the grand opening of its new steakhouse concept Elisa last week with a special soiree welcoming VIP guests.
Located in the heart of Vancouver’s Yaletown neighbourhood, Elisa’s historic space was reconceptualized by award-winning New York-based design firm, Rockwell Group to set the stage for an intimate and inviting West-Coast culinary experience.
“Elisa resets the table of what a modern steakhouse experience feels and tastes like,” says Michael Doyle, president of Toptable Group. “With the passionate leadership of executive chef Andrew Richardson (CinCin Ristorante + Bar), restaurant director Ricardo Ferreira and our dedicated team, we look forward to creating a truly unique and delicious experience that speaks to the art of true hospitality.”
Richardson and his dteam will deliver prime cuts and seafood from around the world —including B.C., Nebraska, Japan and P.E.I. — that are wood-fired on Elisa’s one-of-a-kind Grillworks Infierno.
Bar manager Katie Ingram’s elegant cocktails feature drinks such as her Earl Grey Martini, Red Star Line, Whiskey Smash and Incandescent. Wine director Franco Michienzi’s glass-encased wine cellar features more than 5,000 bottles from both local and international renowned houses.
