The new go-to in the city for great wines and snacks belongs to the same people behind Canis, one of Canada’s Top 100 restaurants. They offer a selection of small snacks and sharing dishes like Canadian oysters with house-made hot sauce, cured meat, beef tartare, braised ribs, a fried fish sandwich, and more. The major focus here is the wine, including many small-lot finds from places like Austria, Australia, and South Africa. The interior is all about clean minimalist design, offering plenty of communal seating if you’ve got the whole crew with you. Après, as its name suggests, is the place you go at the end of the night, for that one last glass of wine that you totally deserve.
