The Newest Michelin-Star in Leslieville: Wynona


The girls took me to Wynona (located in Leslieville) on my 26th birthday! This cute Italian wine bar with a Michelin-star had some of the most unique and elaborate dishes I’ve ever had in Toronto.

Dishes in order:

• Saffron Tonnarelli: So beautiful; not my favourite but was very savoury and delicious.

• 🌟Ontario Pea Agnolotti: My favourite pasta!! Refreshing, not too rich, & the flavours perfectly balanced.

• Branzino, Brown Butter: I don’t love fish but the sauce was incredible. Wish I could have had it with scallops!

• 🌟White Lily Farm Baby Carrots, Harissa, Garlic Yogurt, Spiced cashews: The best carrots I’ve ever had! Apparently a very popular appetizer here

• 🌟Radiatori, ‘Nduja, Dandelion, Burrata, Green Garlic: This pasta was spicy and the texture was amazing! Definitely a favourite among the group.

• Fioretti alla Carbonara, Guanciale: Tasted great and would’ve been the top appetizer but the Fioretti (“flowering cauliflower”) was a bit mushy/wish it was cooked for less time

• Marinated Olives, Pepperoncini: Warm olives which was delicious!

• 🌟White Chocolate Bavarois, Brandy Cherries, Raspberries, Milk Crumb, Lime: Sweet and sour from the cherries YUM! This was way better than I was expecting. Highly recommend!

Note: 🌟 are my favourite dishes.
