COME AND GET IT 676 Queen West, 647-344-3416, comeandgetit.ca
Along with cocktails and craft beer, snacks have come to define our city’s nocturnal zeitgeist. New bars have a slim chance in hell if they miss the small plates and artisanal beverages bandwagon.
Since moving from its pop-up at Spadina and Queen a few months ago, Come and Get It has been offering lunchtime sandwiches and late-night bites.
In an effort to attract hungry industry people with limited options when they get off shift, owner Jon Polubiec, who cooked for years at restos like Mistura and Prego, promises an after-hours menu that lets you choose your snack and format – on flatbread or atop poutine, for example.
The promise of post-shift food and a nightcap drew me in past midnight one recent drizzly evening.
With Skam-inspired graffiti inside , bumping hip-hop and giant front windows, the new Come and Get It has the familiar campy, urban feel of its predecessor pop-up – kind of like you’re drinking in an alley off Richmond.
A seasonal cocktail list is in the works.
So the next time you’re parched and bordering on ravenous well after dark, just go and get it.
Access One step at entrance, washrooms in basement
