Carens Wine & Cheese Bar is one of the city’s best dining destinations. Located in the well-to-do neighbourhood of Yorkville, the slim, elegant restaurant serves lunch and dinner, and brunch on weekends. The menu boasts international flavours and techniques, with a focus on wine and cheese. One of the city’s best getaways is Carens secluded back patio. Exotic lanterns and soft candlelight light the brick and wood walled space, while seasonal foliage and plump pillows add bright colour. Come out and join on on Saturday August 16th for dinner, and a wildly popular afterparty featuring Petergail Williams with Toronto's famous DJ Matty Ryce.
