Here's a peek inside the newest Cactus Club Cafe location in the GTA (PHOTOS)
Popular West Coast restaurant, Cactus Club Cafe is about to open its second location in the GTA this week.
That’s right, Torontonians will be able to enjoy the chain’s undeniably delicious and modern Canadian cuisine starting this Wednesday, October 24, at Sherway Gardens.
The new location is part of the shopping centre’s major $550-million redevelopment that has brought several new high-end retail and dining options to Sherway.
Sherway Cactus Club Cafe guests will dine from a menu developed by their Test Kitchen, which is led by a team of world-class chefs including Iron Chef America champion Chef Rob Feenie and Chef Cory Vitiello, Head of Culinary Development in Toronto.
The menu will feature a mix of signature dishes, such as Chef Feenie’s Butternut Squash Ravioli with Prawns, as well as new highlights including Chef Vitiello’s Lobster and Prawn Tagliatelle Nero with pistachio green chili pesto and Mediterranean-inspired Salmon Fresca with fresh herbs, baby gem tomatoes, shaved fennel and hummus.
New vegetarian and vegan menu items will also be featured on the menu, such as the Tofu Lettuce Wraps and Grilled Tofu Modern Bowl.
To satisfy those with a sweet tooth, guests can enjoy Chef Feenie’s warm Apple Galette served with Tahitian vanilla ice cream.
In addition to the menu of globally inspired foods, sommelier and service director Sebastien Le Goff has developed an extensive wine list that includes bold, esoteric, and intricate offerings to highlight Canada’s growing wine industry, old-world gems, and new world discoveries.
The two-level, 450-seat restaurant features sleek and modern décor that includes an impressive art collection with pieces from artists like Andy Warhol, the influential Jean-Michel Basquiat, Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami and well-known LA street artist Mr. Brainwash.
Additionally, guests will marvel over a show-stopping custom piece that adorns the wall of the two-story entranceway by artist Daniel Mazzone.
Beyond the art, the retractable roof is also a standout element, with the second-floor all-season dining room and lounge featuring one of the largest retractable roofs found at any restaurant in North America.
Cactus Club Cafe Sherway Gardens will offer daily afternoon and late night specials, as well as half-priced bottles of wine on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Doors officially open at the new location on Wednesday, October 24 at 5:00 pm and will be open daily from 11:30 am to 1 am.
