Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavour and seal in savoury juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics. Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale pub fare at Tudor Rose on Panatella Boulevard.
This traditional English bar and grill prods hearty appetites with house-smoked meats, homemade sauces, and 22 draft beers presiding over an ornate wooden bar. Tudor Rose's eclectic pub menu galvanizes taste buds from all corners of the earth's square surface to nimbly nibble dishes such as the beef or pork riblets, smoked on-site and submerged in a barbecue dipping sauce simmered from scratch. After crowning lips in a refreshing, frothy mustache, mates can patent a build-your-own-pizza ($9.95+) or penetrate the golden potato crust of classic shepherd's pie, submerging chops into its potpourri of tender meat and vegetables ($11.95). The handsome, homestyle eatery also caters to restrictive diets with healthful alternatives to many of its signatures dishes. A bevy of shareable platters sates stomachs until 3 am Thursdays–Saturdays, inviting patrons to quaff pints and skewer s'mores into the night under the blazing glow of Tudor Rose's 23 plasma televisions.
Tudor Rose is an English pub at heart. The bellies of its regulars are warmed by dishes such as shepherd's pie and beer-battered fish and chips, and it's clad in handsome dark wood and bronze lamps designed to make even liver and onions look radiant. But its take on tradition isn't limiting—the sprawling menu also includes thin-crust pizzas, home-style lasagna, and Mediterranean-style sandwiches with feta and tzatziki. For dessert, there's sticky toffee pudding and Canadian maple crisp. And, like any English pub worthy of the name, Tudor Rose completes meals with draft beers, mixed drinks, and wine.
