Cactus Club Cafe Restaurant Review: Since taking on the role of “Food Concept Architect” for this casual fine dining chain, Rob Feenie has been wooing guests with his signature luxury dishes served at approachable tabs. (Consider that he once presented his plates at Lumière and Feenie’s for double the price tag.) Feenie's culinary delights have included tuna tataki; Kobe-style meatballs; a seven-ounce certified Angus sirloin with shiitake, portobello, button and crimini mushroom demi; and a barbecued duck clubhouse sandwich with pan-seared chicken and crisp prosciutto on pecan fruit bread. Gluten-friendly and vegetarian options are also featured on the thoughtfully crafted menu. Dessert is a must, especially when a warm apple galette and a chocolate peanut butter crunch bar are offered. Expect happy surprises on the wine list selected by Sebastien Le Goff, one of Canada’s most knowledgeable wine professionals. An eclectic selection of martinis and locally brewed signature beers is available, too. Cactus Club Café dubs itself the “House of Yes” and as such, duplicates its crowd-pleasing formula at several locations throughout the city, including waterside at English Bay and Coal Harbour, plus the Lower Mainland from West Vancouver to Richmond to Coquitlam.
