Did a quick search (chowhound, gooogle, ...) . Maybe I am too lazy or just simply too stupid.
But I was unable to come up with a concrete list of toronto Wine Bars.
I am considering a very narrow definition here. My goal is to drop by and consume up to 2 wines by the glass per person (4 wines total for a couple). Maybe on a weekend afternoon, maybe before I go out for some serious food at a great restaurant, maybe I just need to get away from work some wednesday?
I don't want food, care little about decor. Just want a large selection of good quality by the glass wines. As a low bar, anything with less than 16 wines is not a wine bar - this is a very arbitrary random number - I welcome your suggestions along with a count / variety of the wines on tap!
My (very) short list contains:
Crush (it was closed for a private function last time I tried!)
J.K. (where ever he currently is)
Reds (are they still open? Bare was closed last time I tried, restaurant was "out" of champagne by the glass!)
Mirabelle (new comer, could use a little polish? but promising)
Lolita's Lust (supprised me! it was actually good!)
So I am currently very disappointed in my knowledge of local wine bars as the above list is way too short for a city the size of toronto.
