Brewpubs with great food

One of the best beer spots going is Bar Hop and the food is really well done pub fare but not high end by any stretch. I haven't been but continue to hear great things about both the beer and food at Indie Ale house.

Live music, make their own Beer or excellent beer selection. Recommendation for out of towners needed.

The Cloak and Dagger is not a brewpub but has an excellent beer selection including a cask and they most certainly do rock.

Best Pork Dishes

The best pulled pork sandwich I've had in TO is at the Painted Lady on Ossington. Jess takes real pride in her pork and has just the right balance of sweet and heat for my liking. Goes very well with the cold local beer on hand.

I recently had a pork belly dish at The Grove that was spectacular.

Need to impress a VIP client from Las Vegas - recommendations?

I understand Cafe 668 (I think) at the corner of dundas and claremont to be an excellent veggie resto.

21st Birthday in Downtown Toronto; Need recommendations

Supermarket may stop putting food out at 10pm but the drinks certainly keep coming till close. You should call and talk to someone as for a large enough group I suspect they could arrange for some snackables to arrive past the 10pm witching hour. The food is very reasonable for the quality and it certainly provides the dancing\club atmosphere for later in the night.

Newfoundland Food Part I

It has been a very long time but one of the best Mexican Resto's I have ever been to was in a strip mall handy to MUN years and years back. First time I ever had Jicama.

Opera Bob's on Dundas just east of Ossington has a fantastic selection of locally brewed beer on tap. While their kitchen is not open on Monday's the last time I checked they do allow you to bring in take out from near by places like the Lakeview Lunch etc.

Bday Dinner/Wild Game or Exotic Meat?

Beast is closed till next week sometime.
