Neighbourhoods value their pubs as a place to socialize, just as they value the ends of their rainbows as a place to find extra parking-meter change. Enjoy camaraderie at close proximity with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of gastro pub fare and drinks at FitzRays Restaurant & Lounge.
Located in centre of downtown, FitzRays Restaurant & Lounge's menu of gastro pub fare beckons urbanites with appetizers, sandwiches, pastas, and pizza. Hearty dishes such as the 10-ounce AAA Angus strip loin fuel patrons for an evening of emphatic chewing ($20.59). For creative spins on classic fare, the Majestic mac 'n' cheese sports bowtie noodles festooned in pancetta and bread crumbs ($12.99), and the barbecue-chicken pizza comes covered in Forty Creek whiskey sauce, red onions, and a mountain of mozzarella ($12.47). Lighter bites include Asian spring rolls, a medley of fresh vegetables wrapped in rice paper as light and airy as a hot air balloon filled with untrained falsetto singers ($8.99).
FitzRays' environs exhibit multiple personalities in one space, with a bar area adorned with flat-screen, high-definition televisions, a patio, and a restaurant area sectioned off by billowy curtains. For fans of live music, the performance area presents no barriers between crowd and stage, allowing audience and musicians unfettered access to exchange intense eye contact.
