Bohemian Gastropub, Toronto, ON

After Gord and I saw The Rum Diary, we walked to the Bohemian Gastropub on Queen Street W for supper. It opened in July and we've been wanting to check it out.

It's a cute spot ... here's the front.

There's also a big room in the back.

We sat by the window so had a great spot for people watching on Queen Street W.

Our server came over right away and asked up what we wanted to drink and was quick about getting them to us. Then the service went downhill. We had made it obvious that we would be ordering food but it took him a long time to come back. When we tried to catch his attention, he was indifferent to our needs.

I ordered the Southern Fried Buttermilk Chicken and Mashed Potatoes.

At $16, it's expensive for what you get. A thin layer of mashed potatoes and a small boneless chicken breast. The chicken was moist and tender but the batter was fairly bland.

Gord ordered Battered Fish and Chips.

Surprisingly it's trout rather than the usual cod, haddock or halibut. At $16, this too is fairly expensive. The fries were good. Gord said the fish was mushy and not great.

Given the cost of the food, we were surprised at the low cost of drinks. A draft is $6 or $7 and a rum and coke was $6.25.

We both agreed we couldn't go back to eat there again. Gord loves beer so was happy with the beer selection and said he'd go back for a drink. There's enough bars on Queen Street W that I'd be inclined to go elsewhere.
