Dog Tiger Pub Toronto

The Dog & Tiger Pub

The Dog & Tiger Pub is an elevated take on a neighbourhood bar. The menu here is made up of food and drink that's upscale, yet approachable and affordable.

The space was formerly home to Mullins, and has received a major facelift.

With a capacity of roughly 90, the pub is divided into a high-ceilinged space with a bar and mural and a low-ceilinged back area with a fireplace.

A baked wild mushroom flatbread appetizer ($12) is solid, soft and garlicky, topped with fior di latte, goat cheese, watercress, cherry tomatoes, and a hit of truffle oil.

Brasserie style steak tartare ($14) dresses roughly chopped hand cut filet mignon with tangy, boozy brandy, Dijon and cornichons for a classic bistro small plate, served with buttered crostini. All bread is provided by Ace.

Mussels “Vindaloo” ($16) also have an iconic pub feel, steamed east coast mussels plated with du Puy lentils, rapini and a Vindaloo cream sauce.

An Ontario grass-fed beef banquet burger ($15) isn't messing around, on a shiny toasted milk bun with Dijon mustard aioli, shaved red onion, aged cheddar, tomato, chewy maple glazed bacon and a thick slice of pickle.

Steak frites ($24) are also made using Ontario grass-fed beef, an eight-ounce portion of grilled top sirloin served on a bed of fries. Also served with the burger, they're nicely sized, crispy and well-seasoned.

The 40-ounce bone-in pork knuckle ($36) is the house specialty, basically the schweinshaxe dish that’s popular in Eastern European taverns.

Slow-roasted, skin on, with a dark stout and honey glaze, the meat takes on a rich, Thanksgiving-like quality. It's meant to be torn apart and feasted upon accompanied by country bread and some phenomenal house mustard, horseradish and giardiniera.

Moscow Mules ($13) set the tone for a list of classic cocktails, served in a typical copper vessel. This is more the kind of place where you can ask for a martini prepared to your exact specifications rather than a spot for signature cocktails and gastronomic mixology.

Classic Caesars are $8, garnished with a furl of celery that isn't as obstructive as it seems at first and house pickled beans, an ideal potential brunch companion.

The bar features a set of twelve custom designed beer taps as well as bottle and can options, and curated bottles of wine start at just $35.

Owner Luke Nicholson is also a musician, and has squirrelled away records of his as part of the decor. DJ nights and bring-your-own-vinyl nights might even take place here.
