Brunch + all you can drink ALCOHOL.

hi everyone.... i recently moved back home to toronto after spending some time in NYC. I'm already missing the food, different restaurants and cuisine. I was wondering if there were any restaurants here that serve amazing BRUNCH with all you can drink alcohol. Please let me know. Thanks.

      1. Ontario mandates minimum drink prices, so "all-you-can-drink" specials would probably be illegal here. I've never heard of a local place that offers this.

        1. Nope. You'll have to return to NYC for restaurants offering brunch and all-you-can-drink Mimosas. :-)

          1. Law in Ontario stipulates a minimum price for each alcoholic beverage not less that $X (I don;t remember what X is, but googling for the Alcohol and Gaming Commission should tell you).

            Sooooo...long answer for no all you can drink brunches in establishments open to the public in Ontario

              Of course, the OP could stock up on booze (at home), and get an AMAZING brunch to-go. Stockyards will do take-out brunch. ;-)

                For a moment, I thought you were going to suggest he/she smuggle in a flask :)

                I like the Stockyards take out suggestion better

                  Ha ha. That's so old school. If only TO had a brunch offering bottomless fresh-squeezed OJ in TO. I've only seen bottomless OJ in NYC, too. Fresh-squeezed OJ is reasonably priced at White Brick Kitchen. I think it costs around $4/glass.

                    Haha, oh how I miss me flask days.

                    As an aside, are Ontario patrons allowed to bring in bottled liquor to an establishment and have the bar staff mix the drinks from the brought bottle? That could be an option for OP.

                    We used to do that all the time in Chicago in my college days.

                      No. wine only and only if the restaurant has a BYO license
