What’s on the menu at WVRST, Union Station’s brand-new beer hall

Union Station recently unveiled the most significant part (in our opinion, anyway) of its multi-year, $800-million revitalization: a brand-new food court. Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the latest addition to the busy transit hub—which already has a few sit-down restaurants and a beer hall—introduces 10 new food vendors in a 600-seat space designed by Partisans (the same team responsible for Bar Raval and Quetzal’s good looks). We won’t go into detail about what’s available at the usual food-court suspects (McDonald’s, Tim Hortons, Pizza Pizza) but here’s a look at some of the other new vendors, and what you can order at each.
