Prenup Pub

At first glance on their web page the impression you get of the Prenup Pub is one of post secondary schtick. A witty, yet profoundly long “agreement” explains the importance of drinking responsibly while also putting a bug in the ear of the reader about the other establishments under the same ownership. Located along the slightly frayed edge of the University of Toronto proper, this cozy two story European pub boast an exorbitant list of beers on and off tap.

And while the students probably don’t need another popular watering hole, the Prenup Pub is a perfect place for the tired, over studied, slightly hungover to get away from sushi and ramen and fast food take out and enjoy hearty, creatively developed pub style meals. With a cozy interior gluttonous of space for large crowds, locals can nurse their too many late nights with a cold one pulled from the bar and a plate of homesick curing grub.

European twists on Canadian Favorites are abundant across the menu from the German or Belgian Poutine to “sausage roll” like Braised Lamb in Phyllo.  Standard dishes like Pork Schnitzel and a Wurst salad of sausage, pickles, garlic, hers and mustard that is so full of unique flavor are so well delivered that it would not be hard to return multiple times in one week just to eat your way through the menu.

Probably the best dish sampled was an instant brunch hangover cure of the Madame Monsieur Waffles.  Chimay ham, cheese, and an over hard fried egg top traditional Belgian waffles that is the perfect combination of sweet, savour and greasy. Served with frites it is sure to be the weekenders special.

If the norm is for restaurants to be a reflection of their neighbourhoods, Prenup Pub tosses that out the window and offers an experience of great food and boozy atmosphere.
