I guess I have a growing love for the BBC, and when you think they're done with it, they bang in with a new location which looks sharper than the rest.

so is the case with this, the latest opening, just a few blocks away from the original "BBC 82" and once created to "unclot" the latter.


Day 1 was full as any other, and so was the "82". but this place, built on the ruins of an old ice cream shop, has something more hearty and european. the lower floor is cozier however placed in such manner that it remains spacious. the windows become doors that open fully towards a crowdy and fashionable cobbled street, the 85th, and accross the road a park. traditionally deco-ed inside with the same red-brick-brit style it has a flat screen TV on the larger wall to merge the brit pub and american sports bar.

The second floor, gifted also with its own flat screen, is small but has an amazing view outside, as well as a discrete balcony that slightly overlooks the bar and the seats on the first floor. very stylish.

I haven't much to say about the service this time around. there have been some of the old-schoolers moved around to take care of this new endroit and show the newbies the ropes, so the quality and service remain good as ever and as everywhere else in this BBC universe.

The selection also remains unchanged, with the usual 4 taps that never disappoint and some imports and local macros. no problem with that. and the food, marvellous as always, on brilliant prices.

I think I may have a new favourite BBC, although it stands a tough fight with the Usaquen one. I wonder whether it will become necessary to "unclot" the "unclotter"? it's too good to be a simple bypass.
