Perfect Steak, and more, in an Art Deco Setting
Housed in a carefully restored art deco building, Gotham Steakhouse has been attracting Vancouverites looking for a refined night out since 1999. A near-20-year legacy in a city where restaurants face defeat more frequently than Batman’s enemies is testament to a thing done right.
From the professional servers, to the skilled bartenders, to the knowledgeable sommelier, Gotham provides flawless service—attentive, but never intrusive—so that guests can relax in luxury, no matter what the occasion.Every steak on the menu, from the Petit Filet to the 48 oz Tomahawk, is masterfully executed. Gotham serves Prime Grade Alberta beef—the well-marbled, bone-in rib eye, in particular, is a thing of beauty—and the freshest possible ingredients. Although Gotham is a steakhouse first, its offerings from the sea are equally outstanding, and the Steak & Lobster is the perfect option for those who would rather not choose between land and sea.
Any day is elevated by a trip to Gotham, but Chef Jean-Claude Douguet is pulling out all the stops to usher in the Year of the Rooster, with these inspired features to complement the regular menu:- Azuki red bean soup w/ coconut cream and tapioca pearls- Classic roasted duck consommé w/ steamed cold water lobster dumplings- Julienne shiitake mushrooms and Asian micro-greens- Jumbo steamed Alaskan King Crab w/ garlic confit, scallions finished with toasted sesame oil- 48-hr braised short ribs w/ Asian pear soy reduction, dashi braised daikon, and pickled baby carrotsFor Valentine’s Day, a visit to Gotham promises to inspire romance (oysters, anyone?). Whatever the occasion, Gotham’s show-stopping interiors—high ceilings, winding staircases, and velvet banquettes—provide a dramatic backdrop. (Lovers’ tip: the somewhat secluded booths at the back on the second floor allow an intimate sense of privacy).Gotham’s various rooms accommodate any manner of special occasion: whether it’s celebrations with friends and family in one of the three private dining rooms, libations and steak with workmates in the cocktail bar, or a proposal over dinner in the main dining room, Gotham rises to the occasion.
