Does Yew restaurant + bar have the meatiest Caesar in town?

I certainly think so.
My cocktail Kryptonite is a well made Caesar. I’ve even been known to sustain myself in my nightclub heyday on vodka-soaked green beans (the only remotely edible item the bar had on hand for people who had skipped dinner). However, good Caesars have been hard to come by in this town. They’re either too watery, too fond of the mollusk, or too full of heat – in this way masking the lack of robust flavour in the rest of the drink. A balanced Caesar has been a quest I had long since abandoned, so I was elated to finally find a Caesar of interest. My excitement tripled when I discovered that the magic ingredient was meat!
Unfortunately, Yew’s Olympic version of the Caesar – a nod to Calgary ’88 with its vodka infusion of chipotle and Oyama’s smoked buffalo jerky, served in a 16oz glass cowboy boot – is only available as part of their Olympic revival menu from February 12-28, 2011. That means that you’ll be seeing me at Yew over the next 2 weeks reliving the glory days of last year’s Olympics in full cowboy cocktail fashion.
See you at the bar.
