The pate was amazing and really tied in the Hitch theme: the pork was representative of Hitchens’ anti-Zionist beliefs while the use of lamb was a throwback to his public criticism of Mother Teresa.
The smokiness was a reference to his ever-present Rothmans and the heavy onion really spoke to the layers of Hitchens’ ideology, from socialist to capitalism to Marxist…
I assume the bar is stocked with plenty of Johnnie Walker Black Label, too.
My favorite part of the blogTO review may be the justification for having a projector in the bar instead of TVs:
The cozy space has one long table as well as several smaller tables and rather than the usual mounted TV, Hitch has installed a projector opposite the largest wall. The bartender mentioned they plan to show documentaries and TED Talks at the bar.
Must. Start. Drinking. Now.
