A Manhattan Landmark for over 53 years, Victor’s Café has been at the forefront of Cuban Cuisine in America. Victor’s philosophy has always been one of maintaining the authenticity of Cuban cuisine while evolving with the times. Everyone from Barbara Walters, Liza Minelli to Don King and Tom Cruise have dined here. Victor’s was even featured in the movie “Cocktail.” Zagat rated 23, they say Victors Cafe “doesn’t rest on its laurels, supplying solid food and fantastic mojitos in energetic environs exuding classic Havana style – ceiling fans and all; old-world service and live music enhance this welcome respite.” The ‘critic top pick’ from NY Magazine who states “the food is top-notch and the sophisticated atmosphere sets Victor’s apart.” Our tradition Cuban menu includes: croquetas- smoked ham croquettes, Victor’s tomato-cachucha pepper sauce; ensalada palmito- organic field greens, hearts of palm, apples, marcona almonds with Manchego cheese; ceviche de camerones- shrimp, citrus marinade, red onion, mango with avocado. Our entrees consist of: salmon carnival- Atlantic salmon, charred pineapple salsa with Cuban polenta; arroz con pollo- braised all natural air chilled chicken and rice casserole with sofrito and beer; ropa vieja – slow braised and pulled prime black angus steak in garlic, tomato, onion, pepper sauce- their house specialty. We end with Cuban desserts and coffee.
