Stopped in on a Monday afternoon for lunch. Tucked around the corner from Yonge - this place certainly caters to a higher end clientele - read Bay Street. As previously mentioned this is no local pub, or even gastro pub it's firmly in the high end restaurant category. (Noticed they had a chefs table in the back end) Sat at the bar overlooking King - where I had the pleasure of being serviced by a surly bartender. Ordered a fantastic roasted red pepper and tomato soup (it was freezing out) and the Kobe beef tacos - with the kobe part obviously being lost in amongest the taco...should've known better.
Give much respect for the concept - all items on the menu came with a beer pairing suggestion and were certainly well thought out. From their extensive list I just had a bottle of the Silly Saison. The prices are too inflated for my meager salary however I'm sure much of the clientele don't bat an eye.
Overall I appreciate the efforts put in and the healthy respect given to beer in this establishment and it comes as no surprise that Beaumont is behind this. However I'll give this a pass next time I'm in town looking for good food & beer and head to C'est What - as they are much more reasonably priced.

Dropped in for breakfast. Eggs benedict. Very good. Matched to a Leffe Brun on tap.
Amazing selection both on tap and in the bottle. WAY pricy. Too pricy. Come on guys please. Take it easy but if you can get it go for it. I just wont go back that's all. The value is not even close to being there.
Treat this place like one that if you can only get something here and no where else because you can get everything else everywhere else for less money.
Guess this place is a meet market after 9pm so count me out on that.
