Crush Wine Bar

Sit at the bar for a wine flight, or get comfortable in the dining room for the big wine dinner. Sommelier Mark Moffatt pairs drinks perfectly with chef Michael Wilson’s regional cuisine, which includes the crush charcuterie board ($20) and a seafood tower with oysters, calamari and poached laughing bird shrimp cocktail ($30). (455 King St. W.; 416-977-1234)

Local Kitchen and Wine Bar

Chef Fabio Bondi’s compact Parkdale restaurant and wine bar recently expanded into tiny Bar Salumi next door. It’s a true testament to the local love of authentic Italian food and a good glass of wine. Don’t miss the Ontario Berkshire pancetta, cured with Canadian maple syrup, smoked potato gnocchi or homemade pappardelle with chard. (1710 Queen St. W.; 416-534-6700)

In the ale-swilling sociable town of Halifax, where there’s a pub on every corner, wine bars were late to the party. But Obladee ticks all of the boxes—a good selection of wine by the glass, charcuterie platters and local cheeses, like the famous Dragon’s Breath Blue, Avonlea Coulthbound Cheddar and Le 1608. The best part? It’ll set you back only $15. (1600 Barrington St.; 902-405-4505)
