The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of boring, inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare at Gallery Pub in the Paragon Theatre. The recently opened Gallery Pub accompanies theatregoers wishing to imbibe tantalizing tunes and a cappella cuisine. Gallery’s menu expels the arbitrary with a classic lineup of gourmet salads and sandwiches. Munch on a mean salmon ($14.50), dripping with Nova Scotia honey and maple, or a baked three-cheese rotini ($8.00) with cheddar, Gouda, and Monterey jack cheese. Obviate meat with a selection of vegan and vegetarian meals, including vegetarian chili ($6.50) and a vegan Caesar salad ($12.50), free of traditional animal-derived ingredients such as parmesan, egg, and Imperial Romans. Gallery Pub satisfies the harmonically hungry and nutritionally novel alike from 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
- Food service consists of pub staples such as soup-of-the-day (made with fresh, local and organic ingredients), nachos, wings, poutine, baked rotini, salmon, chili, burgers and for the vegans and vegetarians, check out the selections of salad offerings, including a vegan caesar salad. And yes, the famed Marquee Pizza is featured on the menu, in a personal-sized flatbread version. – Carsten Knox, Coast
