A beer garden, $14 steak frites every day, and an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet are just some of the highlights coming soon to Death & Taxes, the new Queen West pub taking over the former address of The Beaconsfield.
Daily Hive had the chance to speak with owner Jeff Donnelly who shares that his vision for the new pub aims to appeal to the neighbour with a value-oriented menu, ample indoor and outdoor seating, DJ nights spinning soul and funk, and a cask program in addition to an already well-stocked bar.
The interior with room for 75 seats will offer a vibe unique to the neighbourhood while also channeling the ambience of old English heritage pubs mixed with modern elements. Meanwhile, a patio beer garden will double the capacity in warmer months.
The bar program developed by industry veteran Trevor Kallies will double major in beers and cocktails, offering a dozen rotating craft beers on tap as well as four aforementioned casks and an expansive list of bottles.
To eat, expect a steak frites (a flank steak with gentlemans’ butter, a blend of garlic and herbs) is priced at a very enticing $14 every day and offered alongside pubby staples like a house ground burgers smothered in Russian dressing, and various other seasonal dishes.
Also noteworthy; weekend and holiday BRUNCH! An all-you-can-eat brunch buffet to be specific.
It’s as if the Vancouver-to-Toronto transplants have finally assimilated and figured out that the real way to endear themselves to Torontonians is all about weekend feasting and day drinking. And we’re cool with it. Go ahead and buy our love with AYCE bacon and eggs.
