Interview
5-min with Victor
On Cooking for Others…
It’s about the party. No matter how simple or complicated the food, I try to create a welcoming and relaxed environment. My food reflects that—it’s friendly and fun.
His Path to Becoming a Chef…
My grandmother was my original inspiration. She lived downstairs from me and was always cooking, making sauce or rolling meatballs. I got recruited as her helped and got hooked. In high school, I worked at a lobster farm on Long Island and then went to culinary school when I graduated. Since then, I’ve worked in a lot of kitchens and helped Todd English open up in Las Vegas and New York.
Most Memorable New York Meal…
New Year’s Eve at Del Posto with my wife. Everything was flawless, with attention to detail in every course.
Most Popular Dish at Isola SoHo...
Our tuna crudo with watermelon and balsamic. The tuna and watermelon look very similar, but have totally different flavors. We shave jalapenos on top so that they melt over the tuna, then top it with some toasted pine nuts for texture and crunch. The balsamic ties it all together and balances out the dish.
Your Biggest Inspirations…
Wylie Dufresne (of wd-50). We met in Las Vegas and were actually roommates for a while. He’s so experimental, it’s hard not to get inspired. While I don’t advertise the food science, I use the techniques sparingly to yield a better, more consistent product.

Also, Ken Oringer (of Clio in Boston). He taught me how to refine my cooking, but still maintain big and bold flavors.
Why Veal Milanese?
It’s comfort food at its best. In this version, the provolone cheese adds texture and you can’t go wrong with breaded and fried meat.

This dish is an Italian classic for a reason. The veal is crispy and tender, like a more sophisticated version of fried chicken. Our version features an arugula salad, which is a great contrast to the meat.
