Everyone wants a pub to call their own and now you can at MyPlace Pub in the Bloor West Village. And according to owner/chef Brad Long they’ve only been open a week and they already have regulars! And I can see why with the great selection of beer, wine and upscale pub food. Were not talking greasy, overbattered fish and chips either.
I had the Black Cod fish-and-chips that literally melted in your mouth. Of course, I washed it down with a Blanche de Chambly, a Quebec white ale with great acidity and citrus notes. Other great beers of note including Mill Street, Muskoka, Steam Whistle and Big Rock, but also stouts and dark ales.
But let’s get to the wine list. It’s very Ontario-focused, including red and white wines from Tawse, Flat Rock, Stratus, Henry of Pelham and Malivore to name a few. For dessert, they even have a Prince Edward County Ice Cider, which would go great with their Norfolk Empire Apple Pan Dowdy.
I also had the opportunity to taste the Kozlicks Triple Mustard Crusted lamb chops, which I think it would pair well with the Prospect Shiraz from BC, and the pierogies which re hand made in house. Hands down, these are the best pierogies I have ever tasted and they would be a fun match with the Tawse Echos Chardonnay.
