One Victoria BC restaurant, Prime Steakhouse & Lounge, has proven it's truly a cut above by being named one of Canada's best new restaurants.

"We're certainly pleased with the kind recognition," says Bill Almeida, general manager of Prime Steakhouse & Lounge. "We aim to set a high standard that all of our staff, from the kitchen to our front of house, are proud to deliver on."

The restaurant was part of Where Canada's Best New Restaurants of 2010 list, an award program devoted to celebrating Canada's top chefs and innovative restaurateurs. The list of selected restaurants is comprised of one new establishment from each of Where magazines' regions, and was the only one selected amongst restaurants in Victoria, BC.

Prime Steakhouse & Lounge is a steak lover's paradise and offers six cuts of steak. On-site dry aging and the over fired broiler produce flavor and juice with a crisp crust. Other features on the menu include lamb, a selection of fresh seafood, poultry and pasta. Their extensive wine list has the ideal varietal to compliment each course.

"We treat each cut with the attention and care it deserves, and we pass that consistency and execution onto each and every customer," says Chef Bruce Batty. "We're grateful for this recognition."

Prime Steakhouse & Lounge is conveniently located off the lobby of the The Magnolia Hotel & Spa in downtown Victoria. With only 64 rooms, The Magnolia offers an unsurpassed commitment to attentive service. The hotel is centrally located just steps away from Victoria's picturesque Inner Harbour and the city's best galleries and entertainment. Repeatedly recognized by Condé Nast Traveler readers as one of the top hotels in Canada, the Magnolia caters to romantics, business and leisure travelers, and their pets.
