The Alex Restaurant
Posted: Dec 12, 2015

The Alex Restaurant is Burlington’s unique restaurant destination, specializing in small-plate dining.

Chef Matthew Kershaw offers items such as Pingue charcuterie, bacon-wrapped fries, gluten-free gnocchi, Thai chicken and shrimp meatballs, deboned and stuffed chicken wings, interesting salads, and decadent desserts — all on small, sharable plates. Their service is well-informed but casual, in a warm, candle-lit space. Their wine list focuses on great finds that aren’t available in the LCBO.

While they love meat more than some people love their first-born child, they are always very happy to accommodate those who don’t — vegetarians and vegans are welcome! Also, for those of you that are glutarded, we offer almost everything with gluten-free alternatives.

If you love chain restaurants, you probably won’t love The Alex. And that’s ok.

If you already love them and want to see the other fun stuff we do, why not check out the rest of our family: Rapscallion Rogue EateryTwo Black SheepBlack Sheep Snack Bar and Except For Kenneth.

We hope to see you soon.
