TRIED AND TRUE
A semi-subterranean wine bar nestled into the bustling Kensington neighbourhood, Winebar Kensington's extensive wine list covers off all tastes, from solid standbys to bottles from far-flung countries. Any and all of them match well with the ever-changing menu of share plates that has given the restaurant a well-earned reputation for top-notch food. Expect to see oysters, cheese, and charcuterie, along with different plays on pastas, vegetable-centric dishes, and those with duck and fish as the focus. On top of a menu that consistently reflects the changing seasons with local ingredients, the chalkboard set to the side of the small, open kitchen changes daily, allowing both the chefs and patrons to indulge in something fresh and new each night.
