BEER MEETS BOCCE

Richmond Hill Post - - Food -

Ever since Track & Field hopped onto the bar scene, Toronto’s night owls have been pretty keen on game bars. Now LOB has joined the co­terie. Set in a 10,500-square­foot space in the east, this beastly venue strad­dles the line be­tween beer hall, restau­rant and bocce ball course. Well, we should say bocce-slash-golf course, as Lob opted to spruce up the game a bit. Balls are, yes, lobbed down a nine-court in­door course that pre­tends that Mother Na­ture has had her way in its cre­ation, boast­ing hills, curves, etc. When it comes to bev­er­ages, a spot­light is shone on craft beer that was birthed east of Yonge. Think: Saulter Street, Muddy York and Rad­i­cal Road. Ad­di­tion­ally, there’s a restau­rant proper dubbed Track 10 (har har), which dishes out sports bar–style grub that will sa­ti­ate amped-up play­ers. A high­light is the house-made porchetta on fo­cac­cia with all­spice jus. 100 Broad­view Ave., lower level
