great for drinks & oysters (check first before going for oysters, however, as oysters are not featured daily) and also for a casual yet delicious meal. the grilled cheese with the pulled pork is divine, burgers are fantastic as well (albeit on the pricier side as far as good burgers go..). service is very friendly and non intimidating. oyster shooters are also delish!

After a long and unsuccessful spot to celebrate, we came upon Prohibition and were delightfully surprised! Great food, awesome service, welcoming and friendly atmosphere! Visited on a random weeknight, found the place rather busy, experimented with their great alcoholic beverage menu, ordered some food, and left satisfied!

Price Range: $60per person

Three words: duck fat fries. We guarantee poutine fans will taste the difference with the crispy gourmet spuds at this Leslieville gastropub. The menu delivers three gourmet poutine varieties: chili cheese; redneck poutine, made with lamb confit, goat cheese, tater tots and truffle oil; and a Gastrohouse poutine made with duck confit. Want to pair your poutine with discounted booze? Visit during hooch hour (5 to 7 p.m. and 10 to 11 p.m. daily) to enjoy high-end liquor, house wines and draught beers for just $5.09.

Mac 'n' cheese must-tries in Toronto

Mac 'n' cheese must-tries in Toronto

Self-proclaimed and heralded by many as the best mac 'n' cheese in Toronto, Prohibition Gastrohouse uses a grocery list of ingredients including 10-year organic Canadian cheddar, l'ermite bleu, boschetto al tartufo, and black truffles. Riffing off the classic breadcrumb topping, this east-end spot opts to create a sinful jalapeño-cheddar biscuit crust. The dish is so well-known and requested that Prohibition conceded to including it on all four of its menus — including brunch.

This popular Leslieville haunt offers an after work and late night Hooch Hour between 4 and 7 p.m. every day of the week (yes, even weekends). Pay just $5 for pints, house wine and premium sprits and you’ll have enough cash left over to sample some of the upscale pub grub on the menu. Bonus: party shots of Jack Daniels or Jägermeister are less than $2.50 all day, every day.
