The Brew Table

Back in December we got hit with our first snowfall and like many, we didn’t have our snow tires on yet. With November and December being so mild we had put it off. Then, of course, we got hit with a bunch of snow. It definitely didn’t seem cold enough for winter tires, but the snow told us it was time. Our dealer is in Bells Corners so we decided to battle west-end rush hour traffic and have dinner while we waited.

The Brew Table is a busy spot with no resemblance to the Irish pub that was previously there (the bar’s in the same spot, but that’s it). The big windows let in lots of light and the booth and chairs are comfy. Although they have cider (Foundry on tap and Strongbow in a can/bottle), the snow made me want a nice red wine. The menu has a variety and everything looked good. The waitress was more than happy to venture to the kitchen to double check some of the items for me. We split one of their salads just to get some food in us then we were more than happy to linger while we waited for our dinner. Of course The Honey was happy to get a pizza and I savoured my maple glazed salmon. There were a few items I was disappointed in not being able to try, like their appetizer meatballs (have breadcrumbs), but that’s life.

We enjoyed ourselves and liked that we were able to linger without feeling like we were being rushed out. The service was great and our waitress was very helpful. Even though we don’t venture to the burbs that often, this is one place we’ll return to when we do.
