Like piñatas, bodies must be filled with quality ingredients to effectively satisfy the demands of screaming children. Summon the strength to endure a baseball batting from a blindfolded child with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of quality pub fare and drinks at The Next Act in the heart of Old Strathcona.
The Next Act is a sudsy stalwart that has recently come under new ownership and now boasts a new menu of high-quality pub grub served in a revamped interior. The amplified menu includes weekday lunch and weekend brunch, with hearty munchables making appearances in the form of eggs benedict ($12) and a hunger-squelching breakfast burrito ($10). The lunch and dinner menu hosts worldly starters such as Korean cut ribs ($10) and pulled-pork nachos ($18), as well as the usual round of pub regulars, spanning burgers ($11–$13), fish 'n' chips ($14), and sandwiches ($9–$14). Fuel up before a theatre performance or trade moustache-cultivating tips over a bottle of beer from their ample libation collection.
- The Next Act is an unassuming class act, a wonderful remount of an old favourite, and one of the best restaurant values in Strathcona, where honest, thoughtfully prepared plates rule. – Alan Kellogg, Edmonton Journal
- With friendly, casual and prompt service, a cozy atmosphere, and solid 'comfort' food that goes well with a good beer, we certainly hope to be heading to The Next Act a little more often. – Marianne and Charles, Loosen Your Belt
