Jamie Kennedy -- If he's got the best poutine, what's the dress code?


I'm still on a rampage for "half decent" poutine in our lovely city, and everyone is reccomending JK or Bier Market. I've never been to either.

I wear shorts, sandals, and a ball-cap. No, I don't make exceptions.

Am I getting into to either of these?

I want to stop by, sit at the bar, eat a delicious poutine, have 2 pints, and not worry about my clothes.

Let me know :)

  1. Ha ha... "rampage". Although it can be a bit unpleasantly after-work-meat-market inside, I think you'd be ok on the patio at Bier Markt with that style.

      Another option might be to stop in at Jamie K's Gilead Place for poutine then go have some pints elsewhere. Just a thought.

    2. Bier Market is definitely more relaxed than JK's Wine Bar, but I don't think either have a stated dress code.

      While Bier Market poutine is good, JK's rocks the world.

        1. I doubt they'd turn you away at the door, but you would definitely be a bit out of place in a ball cap etc. at JKWB. I haven't been to JK's Gilead cafe, but if the poutine's the same there, that's probably your better bet. You'd be fine on the Bier Markt patio in shorts and a ball cap.

          1. You might look like a bit of a doofus at JKWB in that uniform, but I can't imagine you'd get kicked out (and no offense to your stylist, just telling it like it is).

            The poutine is fab... I can't comment on their beer selections, but it's an interesting question. I'd say it's well worth the trip.

              Haha, wasn't trying to look like a "doofus" just someone dressed to beat the hot weather :)
