Barbecue joint Marky & Sparky’s Smokehouse is opening in Bloor West Village

Marky-and-Sparkys-Smokehouse
Butcher by Nature is launching a new smokehouse where co-owner Frank DiGenova and pitman Marcus De Simone are going to turn the certified-organic, locally-raised meat from Frank and wife Mirella’s nearby butchery into barbecue. The menu at Marky & Sparky’s Smokehouse will include traditional staples like wings, ribs and pulled pork, along with other more experimental fare that’s still in the works, all smothered in house-made rubs and sauces. The new spot is tentatively scheduled to open at the end of the month with only 12 seats—the focus for now is on take-out and delivery—but the couple already has plans for expansion. [The Grid]
