Fat Cat Wine Bar
331 Roncesvalles, 416-535-4064, fatcat.ca
The neighbourhood wine bar that NOW readers across the city love. And with the completion of the Roncesvalles roadwork apocalypse, now you can get there again. Eight Ontario VQA wines by the glass, half-litre or bottle take pride of place on the well-composed and affordable wine list. To accompany the wine, The Cat's small-plates menu provides all the flavours required for sophisticated pairing. Gourmands make themselves at home in Fat's sleek, contemporary interior or on one of the city's nicest patios.
