You may be dressing up for dinner at The Victor, the newly-opened restaurant at Vancouver’s Parq hotel, but some of the items that are wowing guests on the menu like the Mac & Cheese Waffles sound like they are right off the PNE grounds.
The Victor is an upscale Pacific Northwest-inspired steak and seafood restaurant, and it marks the final debut in the already-impressive roster of brand new eating options inside the casino, hotel, and events complex at the downtown foot of the Cambie Bridge.
Diners can choose from an array of steak cuts prepared by broiler, from a $27 Angus Sirloin cap to things like a $150 Tomahawk for two or A-5 Japanese Wagyu striploin offered at $21 per ounce. There’s a raw bar, full sushi menu, a host of seafood dishes, appies, and sides, and a divine dessert menu.
Tucked amidst the prawn cocktail and the charred broccolini, though, are some eats that are definitely playful and decadent.
From the starters selection they’ve got a Reuben Knish, which takes the deli food to a new level in the form of a caraway puff pastry filled with corned beef, sauerkraut, and swiss cheese served with Russian dressing.
For dessert, you can indulge in a bowl of Creme Brulee Donuts that comes topped with a mass of maple cotton candy flecked with gold.
And from the side dishes selection, called “you & i,” you can choose their Mac & Cheese Waffles, which are served with a decadent cheese fondue for dipping.
The Victor is the fifth restaurant concept created for Parq Vancouver by restaurateur/chef/wife-husband team Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla. The elegant modern steakhouse is situated on the sixth-floor rooftop level at 39 Smithe Street, and is open daily for dinner, cocktails, and dessert.
