Against the Grain expands to Leaside Village
By Ray Lontoc
If the name is any indication, Against the Grain doesn’t do the expected. After all, there are pubs and then there are urban taverns, and Against the Grain bills itself as the latter. The upscale bar opened its first location in 2011, and now it’s opening a second location in Leaside, according to its website.
The first location is known for its massive patio overlooking Lake Ontario, so it could be tough to duplicate the same success without the lakeside views. Still, the preliminary sketches of the new location look promising.
The new Against the Grain is aiming to open in Leaside Village in March.
