Racking up lamb @ Brothers Food & Wine

When’s the last time you had a real-deal gourmet meal on top of a subway station, bro? Don’t get me wrong, the Jamaican patties at Bathurst are legit, but that ain’t nothing compared to Brothers: Food & Wine, this funkalicious little joint right on top of Bay Station. This place is so low-key, they don’t even have a website, and they change their menu so often that you won’t find it online… But when I saw they got a much better review in the Times than Guy Fieri’s Times Square Kitchen and Bar, then I knew I had to check it out. Now feast your eyes on this luscious lambchop:

Now, the lamb was nice ‘n fatty, just the way I like it, although it was definitely well beyond medium rare. They served it up on a bed of chickpeas and shepherd peppers, which I wouldn’t normally eat, but when you put some lamb on top, they magically disappear down my piehole:

Now, I know this place has Wine in the name, but when do I ever drink wine, bro? Instead we’re checking out this funky collab sour beer between Brothers and Burdock Brewery:

This ain’t no sissy saison, son! The mixed-fermentation sour beer is aged on Riesling lees and sea buckthorns, and at 5.5%, it’s not quite as sessionable as, say, Bud Light Orange. But if you like sours, then pucker up for this one, bro!!!
