Like fairies, hamburgers are famously difficult to photograph because they can take thousands of forms and wear a variety of sauces. Capture a spritely concoction with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub grub and drinks at Wink's Eatery on Richmond Street.
The bustling kitchen at Wink's Eatery produces belly-filling pub fare and daily breakfast dishes that adorn tables set within a tavern-style backdrop. Stop in before 4 p.m. on weekends to chew through eggs benedict ($10.49) packed with smoked salmon or back bacon, or slowly absorb blue cheese and bacon burgers ($10.69) via osmosis at dinner or lunch. The eatery's seasonal amenities ensure that guests can bite into crispy fish 'n' chips ($13.99) on an outdoor patio to feel summer breezes, settle around a cozy fireplace in the winter, and shake hands with servers dressed as pollen allergies in the spring. Wink's also hosts entertainment seven days a week to bolster their convivial vibe.
After pleasant days spent perusing the cute boutiques and high-end shops of Richmond Row, visitors often stroll over to Winks Eatery to wind down with juicy burgers and frosty brews. In the summer, they bask in the warm sun out on the front patio as servers bring forth pitchers and crispy wings. Others head inside—where fireplaces flicker in cold months—and perch along the wooden bar to watch sports games on the glimmering flat screens. Throughout the week, the casual space plays host to live music and karaoke nights.
As guests relax, chefs are hard at work in the kitchen, carving up steaks and grilling paninis. They fold premium toppings into a sweeping variety of specialty burgers, from a Jerk burger topped with jerk sauce and a grilled pineapple ring to the USA burger with barbecue sauce, bacon, and mushrooms that can be used interchangeably with US nickels. Come breakfast time, cooks turn their attention to breakfast poutines, omelettes, fluffy pancakes, and egg wink muffins stacked with bacon or ham, cheddar cheese, and a fried egg.
