This low-lit, exposed brick neighbourhood bar with a refined-yet-relaxed vibe was a lucky internet find. We went on a weeknight and were surprised to have to wait 15-30 minutes to be seated– clearly a popular spot!

And for a good reason- the food was about as good as bar food gets. My friend and I split the black and blue burger- a delicious patty with blue cheese and cajun spice ($10) and the fish tacos, 3 tacos with avocado puree, cilantro, cabbage, and perfectly battered and cooked fish ($15). Both were right on point and devoured quickly. The menu was diverse and included a cucumber gazpacho, chicken curry roti, a caprese sandwich, and jalapeno smoked pork, with most items hovering at the $10 mark.

Our server was also really friendly and the ambiance was great- ideal for a first date. I would definitely return!
