TORONTO — Victor Restaurant has launched a number of new menu items and is set to unveil its new private dining room.
The refreshed menu pays homage to the restaurant’s vintage yet modern atmosphere by elevating feel-good favourites.
“I’ve tried to recreate some of the dishes that I thought were ‘fancy’ as a child but in a more contemporary manner,” explains executive chef Lanny MacLeod. “I’ve always been inspired by my own memories of food and have tried to make sure every dish has that right mix of soulful nostalgia for a modern palette.”
The new menu features dishes such as braised lamb shoulder with roasted mushroom, celeriac purée and porcini jus and Perch Almondine with french beans and wild rice.
The newly designed private dining room, which opens May 8, offers an intimate setting for private dinner parties or a casual cocktail hour. Accommodating 40 to 45 seated and 60 to 65 standing, the space is an extension of the restaurant filled with charming antiques and foliage.
“Witnessing the growth of the festival scene, an increase in tourism and the rise in condo developments in the area, creating our own private dining space seemed like the natural next step for us,” says Michael Sullivan, owner of Victor Restaurant.
