The secret’s finally out, that new Yaletown steakhouse FINALLY revealed its name, along with other key details Vancouver foodies have patiently been awaiting.

Replacing the now-shuttered Milestones Bar & Grill at 1109 Hamilton Street, the farm-to-table steakhouse will be called Elisa.

The new spot has been under construction for several months but plans to open its doors this fall.

“Elisa was inspired by the values of sharing memorable moments around the table with family and friends,” says Michael Doyle, President of Toptable Group. “Designed as a response to the traditional steakhouse experience, Elisa exemplifies a refreshing spirit of hospitality through its unique and feminine details.”

The “reimagined steakhouse” will feature a Rockwell Group design of a “coastal-inspired design of natural woods, and a palette of azure blues and burnished tones,” along with a menu of prime cuts of beef from around the world.

Culinary highlights to look forward to include a tartare/charcuterie bar (think beef, bison, Yellowfin tuna and vegetables to name a few) and the bar program will boast artisanal cocktails and an extensive collection of premium whiskeys, Agave spirits and Amari.

Some of the all-star team here will include Ricardo Ferreira as the Restaurant Director and Executive Chef Andrew Richardson leading the culinary team which includes Sous Chef Yvan Burkhalter (CinCin), and Alex Hon (West) and Rosalynn Vu from San Francisco’s Slanted Door.

The Wine Director will be Franco Michienzi (Hawksworth), the Bar Manager will be Katie Ingram (L’Abattoir) and the Service Managers will be Benjamin Wristen and Clair Hettich.
