Skin and Bones Wine Bar980 Queen St. E.
This stylish Leslieville restaurant and wine bar takes the marriage between food and grape seriously. Every dish here is predicated on a particular wine with which it might be fruitfully paired. On the list, find comfort-food favourites, like roast chicken and flat-iron steak. On-line reviewers rave about the crispy chicken tails. The wine list at this former auto parts warehouse is more robust, spilling over with reds, roses, whites and sparklings, an impressive 40 of which are available by the glass. The décor is pleasingly minimalist, with a long bar, partially open kitchen and spacious dining area. Service is impeccable, and regulars come back for the abundance of happy-hour specials, like on-the-house amuse-bouches and $1 oysters.
