I like the Bank and Baron, with its high ceilings, impressive digs and heritage status. My colleague is getting married soon and at her request, we held her office shower at the Bank and Baron.
I forgot my wallet at home and had a 6:00 pm yoga class that night, so I refrained from ordering booze. However, I did snag a big piece of Kathy’s pizza (50% off on Thursday) which was tasty. The crust was thin and crunchy. For $10.00, there was absolutely nothing to complain about.
Our table ordered $5.00 house wine and $5.00 pints of Mill St Organic. Twilight and MacBeth ordered fish and chips ($18.00). This picture doesn’t do the food justice. The two pieces of cod were huge and the fish was fresh. The fries were plentiful and served hot and crispy. One order is big enough for two people. I will try the fish and chips when I return.
Unfortunately, the bride to be wasn’t as impressed with her fish tacos. The trio of tacos looked pedestrian and she thought the portion was small for $14.00. She picked at Twilight’s fries instead.
The food at the Bank and Baron has improved since it first opened. For Stephen Ave, the prices are cheap. If you work downtown and haven’t been yet, check it out!
