Miami Beach, FL - January 2010 - Ocean Drive icon, Hotel Victor, is opening its doors to Victor Caf - a Mediterranean bistro from the Bice family. Featuring new patio and street-side seating, as well as indoor restaurant space, this upscale eatery offers a central spot to dine and take in the people and scenery of Ocean Drive.
The menu, created by Executive Chef Julian Baker who has opened Bice restaurants around the world, offers a selection of classic pasta dishes, salads and sandwiches along with decadent entrees such as Atlantic Salmon bathed in a Mushroom & Bok Choy Teriyaki Broth and Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce and Spinach & Creamed Potatoes. For something lighter, diners can opt for a sunset cocktail and small bites such as Prosciutto di Parma, Ahi Tuna Tartar or Beef Carpaccio.
"Both visitors and locals enjoy the ocean breeze and fresh air that Miami Beach offers, and the restaurants along Ocean Drive are the perfect way to enjoy that. Centrally located on this strip of prime real estate, Hotel Victor is an ideal spot to expand our indoor restaurant space outside and Bice is the perfect management group to do it," said Lupe Castillo, Director of Sales and Marketing for Hotel Victor. "Our new Victor Caf offers a central, al fresco spot for a casual brunch steps from the beach, as well as an intimate, indoor setting for a romantic dinner. It's the best of both worlds."
Victor Caf will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, from 7 am to 1 am, seven days a week. For reservation inquiries or further information, please call 305.779.8888.

The historic 1937 property underwent a complete renovation and expansion in 2005. Garcia's interior is respectful of the simple deco lines and Asian-motif ironwork of the original building, designed by famed "Miami Deco" architect L. Murray Dixon. Swanky interior spaces are matched by an equally stunning outdoor pool area that provides direct views of the beach below.
