AAA Bar is bringing barbecue to Leslieville
Adelaide East’s Texas-style barbecue joint AAA Bar is opening up a little sister saloon in Leslieville in the space previously occupied by the short-lived Hummingbird Caribbean. Co-owner Racquel Youtzy (who also operates Riverdale’s Mr. Ciao with her partner Tiz Pivetta) says to expect more of the same, just in a much smaller space, and with wine on tap. “It’s more of a family neighbourhood,” says Youtzy. “But we aren’t going to do anything different—we’re always kid-friendly.” The (also adult-friendly) bar will offer the same drink specials as the Adelaide location: a dollar-an-ounce wine, three-dollar tequila shots and five-dollar Triple A draught. Youtzy is hoping to have it open by the end of February.
