Victor Hugo’s, a comfortable-cozy Oak Cliff neighborhood favorite, lauded for its New American bistro-style cuisine, is expanding to Richardson with a satellite location to be located in a redeveloping center, popular with tech-friendly, mobile-office entrepreneurs.
Helmed by Al Biernat and Lombardi’s Bistro 31 alum Victor Hugo, who serves as both the backbone of the kitchen and the face of the restaurant, the new location will bring to Richardson what has worked so well in Oak Cliff: an elevated mid- and upper-tier dining experience that is both relaxed and approachable. The aim being to be a fine fit for business lunches, weekend brunches and lunches, as well as dinner and holiday events.
Brie, bacon and mushroom quesadillas (with green apple and cinnamon relish), and Akaushi beef tenderloin tagliatelle (Akaushi tenderloin tips, crimini mushrooms, English peas, whiskey cream sauce, Parmesan), will find a comfortable place alongside their trip-worthy VH Burger (Texas wagyu, kaiser roll, green leaf lettuce, smoked bacon, fontina, avocado, grain mustard) on the surprisingly versatile menu.
The expected opening is October 31, just in time for office party holiday season, with some city permits still outstanding and unresolved at this time.
