Victor Restaurant is a new(ly revamped) addition to the King West area, located in the lobby of Hotel le Germain, Toronto. It’s a great setting for those who want to dine or lounge. A new menu and a new look were revealed in 2011, both designed by Jenny Francis Design.
General Manager Michael Sullivan and Chef David Chrystian recently joined the team to re-launch Victor. Prior to working at Victor he attempted to open his first restaurant, Patriot Restaurant, which unfortunately ended up closing. As well, he has had extensive experience in places like the Crowne Plaza and Drake Hotel. More recently, he was a competitor on Top Chef Canada.
But, back to Victor! The lounge area is cozy, with plush velvet couches and oversize lampshades, overlooking Mercer Street. The dining room features an art deco style and can seat up to 40. Reviews often praise the great food, friendly service and elegant atmosphere.
The food at Victor is primarily tapas-style, with emphasis on shared platters. Their “Taste Toronto” menu offers a selection of dishes reflecting the various ethnic cuisines that can be found around the GTA. These options change weekly.
Meanwhile, the main menu offers lots of sustainable seafood dishes like marinated sardines ($14) or dishes for meat lovers like the roasted elk and venison sausage ($28). Complement your meal with any of the many wine or cocktail choices!
Whether you’re out with friends, family or on a date, Victor Restaurant is an ideal spot for a relaxing evening filled with delicious food.
