Dinner + phobia treatment centre

A friend treated us to an amazing dinner at Yew last weekend. As in, lobster meatballs and spot prawns amazing.

But while I was there, I couldn’t help noticing this chamber in the centre of the restaurant:

yew

It seems to have been designed specifically to scare the pants off those of us with earthquake fears. It’s a glass room lined with wine bottles, with a sculpture of glass shards above, suspended from a glass ceiling.

Do you think this a new treatment for phobias? Picture your own shard-pierced corpse while eating fancy fish? Maybe it’s the Vancouver version of fugu.
