New Wine Bar in Leslieville ups the ante

Posted by Diane Penwill in Eat & Drink | North America

Great new wine bar in Leslieville! At 747 Queen East, in Picnic Wine Bar’s space, Chef Alex Brown serves up an international tapas-style menu, using all local ingredients. His cooking is strongly influenced by his Jamaican and Trinidadian roots, as well as experience working at Vancouver’s Cioppinos and Toronto’s Rock Lobster.  Signature dishes are the Lamb Lollipops, encrusted in rosemary & thyme, tender with the jus from the lamb shavings  – and the Lobster Spoons, served with crème fraiche & yellow peppers.  The succulent Roasted Chicken, served in a spicy Cajun marinade is also a hit with us.  A sense bomb, the 747 Cocktail mixes raspberry vodka, Limoncello, Triple Sec and fresh lime juice, with chocolate-covered Grand Marnier-infused raspberries. Among the first bars in Canada to use the Coravin wine access system, they have an extensive by-the-glass wine list – with 40 wines to try. Friendly staff enhances the atmosphere, making it feel like the cozy neighbourhood bar it is.
