The Best Wine Bar

Tara heads to the Swirl Wine Bar in Leslieville for drinks, appetizers and desserts.

"Swirl is in a small, converted apartment above a dog store in Leslieville. The décor is eclectic: one table is made from the base of an antique sewing machine and there's a church pew for seating. There’s no kitchen, so they have these amazing appetizers and desserts preserved in small Mason jars ($6 each). The duck liver pate is killer! And they have amazing wine at great prices ($6 and up)."

946 ½ Queen St. East., Toronto 647-351-5453
