The newest IT Spot in Leslieville (and TO): Skin + Bones Wine Bar

Large arrow left

This is a straight up wine bar with minimalist decor in an old automotive shop but the food needs to be mentioned. The raves about the cripsy fried chicken tails are also en point. They are the perfect bar snack, especially if you like salt. the potatoes that come with the tails are nicely seasoned. They don't skimp on the snack portions either.

I had the Perth Pork Belly with arancini and octopus salad. At first, I felt like the items were disjointed but they really worked well together. The pork belly was succulent; the bacon added a crispy layer to the texture and flavour of the dish. The fried arancini was a big portion and the octopus salad gave the dish a nice, acidic touch. I would definitely recommend this dish.

Make no bones about it - this place is a really nice addition to Leslieville. It's a great location and a trendy restaurant that is going to make the west-enders cross over to the bridge. The nabe really needed an option like this.
