Last night, I attended the 50th Anniversary party of Hy’s Steakhouse, this is a huge achievement in Vancouver and quite the milestone of 50 years! The party had some 600 people on the guest list and all were treated to a classic Hy’s experience that we have all come to know over the years.
There is quite the history that began with Founder, Hy Aisenstat 50 years ago, these iconic steakhouses are not only located in Vancouver, you can find locations across Canada.
Guests mingled and enjoyed the open bars, sipping on a multitude of fine International wines, spirits and beer. There were stations of food located throughout the 2 level restaurant including their famous Caesar Salad, Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding, a seafood buffet, their famous Garlic Cheese Toast, delicious Lamb Chops, other canapés and of course Cherries Jubilee!
It is rare these days to find servers who have been working for a restaurant for over 30 years, I met one last night who has worked for Hy’s as a server for 47 years!
Hy’s Encore is located in Vancouver at 637 Hornby Street and on Twitter @Hys_Steakhouse
