“A must if you are looking for a meaty meal! Their food is some of the top in town. Their steaks are fantastic, albeit large. They also offer an amazing burger called the Pub Burger. (Tip - Order a side of Truffle Mayo for your fries!) I also love the braised beef Poutine. Book a reservation as this one is hard to get a table before 8:00.”

Bar

“Default, most frequented bar for whatever mood or outfit your wearing. You ABSOLUTELY MUST take a #brilloselfie in the mirror of the bright pink unisex bathroom near the kitchen entrance. People pile in 10 at a time, don't think twice about it. It's tradition. ”

“Funky, fresh take on Mexican food. Big, cool space. Always a scene. Lots of beers on tap with the specialty being Big Azz margaritas which are 22 oz. (in a lot of different flavors, but never made with a cheap mix.) If you're out late, they're on sale after 10 pm. Huge burritos, good wings (try San Francisco.)”
