Leslie Jones is a Leslieville hotspot where you find quality food in a cozy atmosphere. Chef George Wensley welcomes you into his home away from home where you will find an ever changing menu of the best local fare and his favourite vinyl spinning on the hi-fi. This is the type of place that quickly finds a spot on your list of favourite restaurants due in no small part to the wonderful staff, reasonably priced menu and why NOW magazine named them one of the top 10 restaurants in 2006.
A focus on using the best locally sourced ingredients results in raves for dishes such as the Jerk Pulled Pork with Fresh Mango Salsa and Chili mayo, Roasted Duck with Fennel in a Fresh Herb pastry and a taste of yesterday with a traditional Carrot Cake.
The charm of the neighbourhood’s many artists and vintage shops is carried on at Leslie Jones. A rotating gallery of artists decorate the walls of the small space showing off the talent of our home-grown artists. The lush patio out back is a welcome get-away from the hustle and bustle of Queen St and a lovely spot to enjoy a beautiful Toronto summer night.
