For Molson. For dubious pop exports. For Rob Ford...
Okay, Rob Ford’s actually not so bad.
Anyway. Compensations. Make them.
This week’s looking good on the schedule...
For Earls Kitchen + Bar, a new watering hole from our neighbors up north for beer sleeves, burgers and cocktails, opening Wednesday in Kendall.
Apparently, this place is sort of a big deal in Canada. And apparently, this place got the memo that marble-clad dining rooms stocked with warm leather banquettes and open kitchens are sort of a big deal in the US. Because this place has those things.
It’s a people pleaser of a joint—there’s something for everyone. Meaning it’ll work nicely for a group celebration or some post-work cocktails... with the entire office. Yep, it’s pretty roomy in here. So commandeer one of the communal tables and start with a round of beer sleeves (that’s Canadian for “pints”). Then segue into a hand-smashed Angus burger, BBQ pork buns or tacos.
And if the weather’s anything like it was over the weekend, you should make use of the outdoor patio and order a Mad Hatter. It has vodka, pear brandy, black tea and coconut water. It’s supposed to serve four.
