Morgans on the Danforth

n

Opened just this weekend in what was formerly the location of Taps & Tales, now run by the people who own the Hot House. Can't say the one or two times visiting Taps & Tales if anything stood out, obviously not enough to return for a while. But last night...

Morgans I think has just as many draughts but has brought up the menu in terms of gastropub/culinary offerings -- in contrast to the meh ubiquitous foodservice found almost everywhere. Service was definitely a vast improvement over the former operators.

    Just walked by there at lunch and it was pretty busy. Now that Ten Feet Tall is gone, it would be nice to have a local pub that serves decent food (unlike Sarah's *shudder*).

          Nooooooo! Not that I had been there recently, but it was a good, fun place for a casual dinner out. We now have a young baby (13 months), and he has seriously curtailed our dining out opportunities. I will miss them.

            Thanks for the link. We will miss TFT but even more sorry to hear the owners are having tough times. They seemed like really nice people who created such a friendly vibe to the place. I'll also miss Taps & Tales.

          If you're looking for a local pub in East York with decent, standard pub food, also consider visiting the new location of Rails & Ales on Danforth close to Greenwood. Down-to-earth, cozy vibe, friendly service, reasonable prices. http://www.dine.to/sites/railsandales...

            mariecollins, the Steak Frites was I think $27.

            prima, thanks for the reminder about Rails and Ales. You're the sixth or seventh person who has recently passed on some good word of mouth. And now the new location is even closer to me. Will check it out.
