Uno Mas

It’s finally here! Mezcal TNT‘s lil bro served up some tasty dishes this past weekend during their soft opening. Located just downstairs, Uno Mas has the same atmosphere and serves tapas and pintxos. What are those, you ask? They are small dishes of appetizers and snacks that are meant to be shared with the table, which means eating family-style! The space is a little larger, filled with wooden high tops and industrial bar stools. Beautiful graphic murals liven up the cave-like space, along with authentic photographs and paintings in ornate and decorative frames. The bar sits at the back of the restaurant, showing off their collection of unique drinking vessels and liquors. I gotta say, their washrooms are pretty cute too!

Ever since they popped up on my Twitter feed, I’ve been waiting to try out their menu. Also, when Chanry mentioned they had raclette, it was over. I was going to put in 110% to be their first customer or make it to their soft opening. Since we’re such dedicated foodies, we made it to both. Chanry, Sid, and I went to their first #SundaySocial, then a couple days later, Matt joined us at their soft opening.

Watch the video to get a better look at the restaurant! Sweet vibes and nostalgic hip hop. I loved our dining experience from beginning to end. Congrats Chef Manny on another adventure!

The Lockhart

The Lockhart

Sitting on the corner of Dundas and Dufferin, The Lockhart has non-pretentious décor, chatty staff and a dark atmosphere. The cocktail menu and the furnishings will easily draw you in even if you don’t catch on to the little Easter eggs throughout the bar. Inside, you’ll find exposed brick walls, wood and metal furnishings, an assortment of chairs, simple murals, a beautiful bull skull, a neon sign saying “all was well”, and a glass bar lined with pennies. If you get a chance, take a seat at the bar. You’ll be able to see all the action and talk to the staff about the menus.

Gord’s Place

This sports bar is located right by the municipal buildings in Downtown St. Catharines. There is also plenty of parking on the street right outside the restaurant. Situated in a corner lot, Gord’s Place also has a patio in front of the building. The restaurant is spacious with the bar and dining area on the left and pool tables on the right. We were seated at the high tables in front of the bar with plenty of TVs to distract me from my company.Read More »
