Borough Bar + Grill

Borough Bar + Grill officially opened this summer in the rapidly growing University District. A borough is a self-governing community with its own personality inside a larger community. This new eatery aims to be the “borough” of the University District intending to bring back the social aspect of dining while being part of something bigger. They are the newest addition to the Murrieta’s Hospitality Group paying homage to unique North American culinary traditions in a casual and approachable way. The menu, created by Executive Chef Daniel Pizzaro, shines with seasonal, locally sourced ingredients with an emphasis on family-style dining. We dropped in for dinner one very warm summer evening and started with fried artichokes and mushroom soup, both full of flavour. Next, we enjoyed the rigatoni with a parmesan cream sauce and charred lamb sirloin featuring Moroccan flavours of smoked eggplant, dates, spiced carrots and a minted yogurt. The food was plentiful, but we couldn’t leave without trying one of their house-made square pizzas, so we ordered one to go for a midnight snack. Open for lunch, dinner and brunch on the weekends.*
