5 Best Gastropubs in Edmonton

A gastropub combines the delectable comfort foods of the typical sports bar
or casual restaurant with the creativity and fresh ingredients of fine dining.
If you've ever wanted to taste the best burger, wings, or other pub foods in
your area, a gastropub is the best choice. To decide where to go, check out
this list of the five best gastropubs in Edmonton.

The Almanac

This French gastropub and bistro is perfect for breakfast or brunch and
has a sharp, cool atmosphere. The dishes are made with local ingredients, and
the house is run by a small but passionate team. Roasted red pepper crepes,
banana bread French toast, and duck confit hash adorn the flavorful but not
overly rich brunch menu. There is also a lighter fare section with poutine,
mixed green salads, steak tartare, baked brie, and much more. If you're craving
beef, the Almanac Burger has bourbon caramelized onions, honey thyme goat
cheese, tomato, and greens.

The Common

At The Common, the gastropub dining style pairs with a charming brick
decor with contrasting white and dark colors. The dishes are without a doubt
the most beautiful among Edmonton gastropubs and range from clam linguine and
lobster pot pie to Singapore fried alligator and the very popular truffle
popcorn appetizer. The Common has several different iterations on chicken and
waffles, making it a great place for an unforgettable breakfast.

Provincial Pub

This traditionally Canadian gastropub has a true sports bar vibe and is a
great place to watch a game. Highly rated menu items include braised beef
cheeks on coarse polenta, duck poutine, fish and chips, calamari, Cajun wings,
spinach dip, and much more. Provincial Pub has truly simple recipes that are made from
better ingredients and cooked with more care than any average sports pub. This
restaurant takes reservations, so be sure to call in if you're going at a busy
time.

Glassmonkey

Glassmonkey mixes gastropub food with tapas, an amazing combination that
leads to small plates and enormous flavors. There's also a pleasant outdoor
patio for dining al fresco. The food is affordable and not overly complicated,
with dishes like chicken bryani, bangers and mash, flat-iron steak, and a fun
charcuterie board for parties. If you have room for dessert, try Jack's bread
pudding.

Duggan's Boundary
Irish Pub

Classic sports bar food and Irish cuisine make for a happy marriage at
Duggan's Boundary. The authentic decor is made more pleasant by friendly
servers and a long playlist of traditional folk tunes. The restaurant often
holds parties, events, and live music as well. Loaded pizzas, picturesque
burgers, and cheesy bruschetta are all popular items, along with Irish comfort
foods like green onion cakes, cottage pie, and Irish stew with soda bread. If
Duggan's becomes your new favorite restaurant, you can order for takeout or
delivery.

As you can see, the gastropub style is very flexible, and easily mixes with
other cuisines. Each of these five restaurants stands out from each other, but
all have mouth-watering takes on classic dishes. Visit one, and you'll soon be
finding the fastest excuse to come back!
