What’s on the menu at Mascot Eatery, a restaurant and brewery with a rooftop beer garden
Name: Mascot Eatery
Neighbourhood: King West
Contact: 31 Mercer St., 416-979-0131, mascotbrewery.com, @mascotbrewery
Owner: Aaron Prothro (Odd Thomas, Mascot Brewery)
Chef: Rory McGouran (Scaramouche, The Drake Hotel, Crush Wine Bar, 416 Snack Bar)
Comfort-food classics that go great with beer (burgers, mac and cheese, fried chicken), along with some lighter options like scallops, seared albacore tuna and a couple of salads (beet, soba noodle).
Fourteen local beers on tap including Mascot’s own (currently their pilsner and hefeweizen). All are available in pints, steins and flights. They also have a short list of bottled beer and tallboys, and cocktails, including two on tap. There are five-litre mini kegs, too—Mascot’s version of bottle service.
The main floor is Mascot’s third venue in the three-storey building (clubbier Odd Thomas lives on the second floor, and then there’s the rooftop beer garden). Right now, Mascot makes its beer at Duggan’s in Parkdale, but by the end of summer they’ll have tanks set up in the restaurant. Coming soon: a retail counter that sells Mascot’s brews to go.
