The Courtney Room Announces Summer Family Dinner Series

Gather with family and friends and enjoy innovative, hyper-local monthly dinners  

The Courtney Room is excited to announce a family dinner series, with three dates throughout the summer, starting this Sunday, July 14th. 

The long-table format, held in the restaurant’s brasserie, will showcase an innovative, experimental menu with the very best of Victoria’s hyper-seasonal, locally sourced ingredients, led by co-Chef de Cuisine, Brian Tesolin. This casual yet immersive culinary experience will reflect the skills and personalities of the talented, award-winning chef team, allowing them the freedom to test potential new menu items and let their creativity shine. 

“We wanted to create an affordable dining experience that not only brings people together but also allows our team to have some serious fun in the kitchen,” says Chef Brian Tesolin. “This multi-course, family-style dining series gives us the chance to create a very innovative yet approachable menu that best represents the incredible produce found in our region – summer berries, apricot, nectarines alongside beans, summer squash in July and red fruits, squashes, chanterelle, pine and oyster mushrooms later in the summer.”
