Victoria Gastro Pub Restaurant Review

: Victoria Gastro Pub pays tribute to both the past and the future of that beloved institution, the British public house. From its brass taps to its gleaming woodwork, Victoria’s décor evokes the era of the eponymous queen --- comfortable, yet posh --- while its kitchen’s stylish contemporary offerings show pub grub’s culinary evolution. From beans on toast and mushy peas to roasted salmon with asparagus and lemon coulis: it’s been a wild ride, but one for which every tourist is grateful. Victoria’s entrée list is short (just six items), and includes, in addition to the above-mentioned salmon, dressy iterations of pork, beef and pasta dishes, a crab cake, and for traditionalists, fish ‘n’ chips. However, there are plenty of small plates, salads and sandwiches to choose from as well; the lobster-and-Brie grilled cheese sandwich has its devotees, and the duck fat fries have become a signature item. Dessert choices include honey goat cheesecake and blood-orange trifle with pistachio-almond biscotti. The “pub” part of the bill of fare is as important as the “gastro,” with an extensive list of draft beers and a “Cork Club” for wine buffs. While this is definitely a family-friendly venue, complete with children’s menu, adult night owls can get their English on until 2 a.m. daily.
