EVENT | Carens Wine & Cheese Bar - Yorkville's hidden gem for a great selection of wine & cheese

We were invited for a blogger night at Carens Wine & Cheese Bar, situated in Yorkville.  A wine & cheese bar is quite perfect for the luxurious neighbourhood to stop by after shopping or after being pampered at a Spa nearby.  We've never been here or heard of it as it's not really noticeable as you walk along Cumberland Street but so glad we had the chance to get a taste of what they're all about.  We think we found great spot to come for a glass of wine (or a bottle) and a delicious cheese board with girlfriends or on a date!

It's not a huge space, but there have a bar and dining area on the main floor, a few more tables on the second floor as well as a beautiful summer patio - definitely to be taken advantage of during the warmer months in Toronto!

Tuna Rothschild ($16.00) - Tuna sashimi, avocado, crispy rice cake, scallion ginger dressing & spicy mayo
