Prior to neighbourhood pubs, soccer fans accessed the action by painting themselves white and posing as their opponent team’s goal. Flaunt your fandom in a relaxed setting with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of globally inspired pub fare and drinks at The Football Factory.
The Football Factory crafts globally influenced bistro and bar fare, pours 18 draft beers and ciders, and circulates a soccer-saturated atmosphere. Diners settle into modern dark-wood and stainless-steel interiors before selecting sumptuous items from the varied menu. Sate globe-trotting appetites with chicken souvlaki and pita ($6) or East Coast mussels steamed in your choice of on-tap ale or thai coconut-curry sauce ($11). A piri-piri portuguese barbecue-chicken burger, topped with goat cheese and bruschetta mix, charges saucily forward while brandishing freshly cut frites ($12.50). Diners may also exercise antsy jaws on entrees such as grilled venison tenderloin in a blueberry-maple-nutmeg reduction with pine nuts, yukon-gold potatoes, and market-fresh vegetables ($24).
A bounty of beverages, such as Kronenbourg, Sleeman, Okanagan 1516, Fuller's London Pride, and The Football Factory’s own brews, complements dinner like a whacky yet lovable roommate. Flat-screen TVs fixed to the bar and ceilings reflect off of vintage photos of historic footballers and follow a rigorous game schedule, and the bistro also opens for big games outside during normal hours of operation.
