Introducing: Gaslight, a new neighbourhood local on Bloor West

Introducing: Gaslight, a new neighbourhood local on Bloor West

Name: Gaslight Contact Info: 1426 Bloor St. W., 647-402-9728 Previously: Zocalo Neighbourhood: Junction Triangle Owners: Megan Jones (Reposado) and Tim Pritchard (Communist’s Daughter), who have a combined 26 years of experience in the hospitality industry Chefs: Head chef Michael Greer and consulting chef Garth Legree, the former chef de cuisine at The County General and current executive chef at Little Anthony’s

The Food: Gaslight is more bar than restaurant, so the menu focuses on stuff that’s easy to nibble with a drink in hand—mainly sandwiches and snacks. Still, the short list includes some interesting options. “Poi boi” pierogies are stuffed with shrimp and chorizo, and broccoli poutine is served under a blanket of gruyere cheese sauce and pickled jalapeños.

The Drinks: This is one of the few places in Toronto where a complicated cocktail (house-made this, infused that) still costs around ten bucks. A couple house wines and over a dozen regional craft beers are also available, and the back bar stocks a sizable collection of quality tequilas and whiskies.

The Place: Owners Jones and Prichard gave the space a been-there-forever feel by replacing concrete floors with hardwood, and outfitting the room with cozy booths and church pews.
