Neil Aisenstat

Neil Aisenstat was destined for the restaurant industry.

In 2011, after forging a partnership with his younger brother John, and Vancouver businessman Rob Macdonald, Neil stepped into the leadership role of the company founded by his father Hy in 1955. Since then, he and his partners have led Hy’s of Canada to its greatest success yet.

In 2014, Neil re-envisioned the Hy’s brand and built a new Hy’s in Calgary, the city where it all began. In 2019, he opened a spectacular 3-level flagship on Bay Street in downtown Toronto. Currently, Hy’s of Canada owns and operates six restaurants: Gotham Steakhouse & Bar in Vancouver; and Hy’s Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar locations in Whistler, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, and Toronto.

A passionate restaurateur, Neil Aisenstat has not only developed exceptional, industry-leading restaurants, but has fostered amazing careers for an army of restaurant professionals.
