TORONTO — The Vic Social has opened in Prince Edward County in Picton, Ont. Vic Social takes ownership after the previous Vic Café closure, while building upon some of the county’s favourite foods, such as milkshakes and tater tots.
Inspired by the nostalgic feel of the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s, the Vic Social spans a total of 3,200 sq. ft. (indoor and outdoor space) and can seat 200 guests. The indoor space is reminiscent of an old-school diner but features an upscale dining space with booths along the interior, a classic high-top bar with stools, white and black tiled flooring throughout and an open dance-floor space in front of a large record player print. The outdoor space has a covered patio and an open-air patio with picnic tables, Muskoka chairs and retro games, such as foosball, Connect Four and cornhole toss.
The Vic Social’s menu features elevated diner classics, such as an eight-ounce Vic burger, white truffle parmesan fries and over-the-top milkshakes with the option of making it a boozy shake. Classic breakfast items include crispy chicken and waffles, eggs benedict and sprinkle pancakes. Guests can enjoy a selection of classic cocktails and a wine and beer selection from around Prince Edward County.
“This concept is something that Prince Edward County has yet to see. In the heart of Picton, we now have a destination for people of all ages to dine, dance and play,” says Gary Wilson, owner of the Vic Social. “I’m excited to see all the locals and tourists come together at the Vic Social and make new memories.”
