In this segment of Modern Dining, we delve deeper into the Wilcox Gastropub to see what the fuss is all about.
Normally, we’d put together a great introductory paragraph but after reading what the Wilcox team has put together, we’re going to opt to use their beautiful description.
“Nestled in central Mississauga, close to the community, we intend to bring together and host people who just like us are drawn to the art of gastronomy and drink. We don't just define the intersection of Hurontario and Eglinton, but are also the intersection of contemporary and classic. Inspired by our community and love for food our decor reflects just that.
We offer a comfortable pub atmosphere that serves exciting, seasonal food with sophistication. Our work serves fine beers, an impressive cocktail program, and a carefully curated wine list, to be paired with our dishes crafted to perfection.”
