Toronto, ON M5V 1M3
The King West Bier Markt has got the patio of every bar's dreams: seated and absolutely huge. It gets further check marks for a strong, Europe-leaning beer list (including a few cellared bottles) and food — think wursts, schnitzel, mussels and flammekueches — that deftly match the suds. The food is made from scratch and locally sourced whenever possible. Also locally sourced are the 40 varieties of Ontario craft beer Bier Markt has on tap, but the whopping 110 that make up the rest of the beer menu come from all over the globe. Don't miss the burger loaded with a hand-pressed chuck patty, vine-ripened tomato, iceberg lettuce, shaved red onion, kosher pickle, bacon and Dijonnaise on a sesame seed bun. Go for the onion rings instead of the fries just this once, trust us.
