One-day "Burger and Bottle Shop" popping up at beloved brunch spot

May 20 2020, 4:19 pm

It’s no secret that The Federal’s kitchen whips up the stuff of dreams — just ask any of the folks who would regularly wait in the spot’s weekend lineups during the Before Times.

Now, life is different. But while everything has changed, good food remains the same.

To honour that truth, the brunch joint will be hosting a Burger and Bottle Shop on May 23.

On the menu are three options, as follows:

  • The Four Guys Special: A beef patty with special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, and caramelized onion on a Martin’s Potato Roll
  • The Gold Standard Classic Breakfast Sandwich: Made with bacon or crispy kale, cheesy eggs, pickles, and Marie Sharps on an English muffin
  • The Bulldog Bacon Butty: That’s bacon, bulldog sauce, cabbage, bacon, kewpie mayo, and bacon, on a Martin’s Potato roll. Also a Gold Standard gem. (Same people, folks!)

Beyond eats, bottle offerings range from funky wine (skin-contact and sparkling alongside your red, white and rosé), sherry, vermouth, beer, and plenty of other thirst-quenching goodness.

Pre-orders can be placed online, where you can select your preferred pick-up time, or you can order on the spot if you just happen to stumble across the shop. But if Toronto has ever proven anything, it’s that the city loves lines. Even physically-distanced ones.

If you want to be sure you’ll get your hands on exactly what you’re craving, a pre-order is probably the way to go.
