Frisco's -- Don't go here for wine. Anywhere else?

I'm giving up on this place.

What used to be a wonderful place to go for a glass of wine has become Just Another Bar. New owners?

The wine list is gone -- replaced by a sheet of paper. Three out of four red requested were unavailable. Had to settle for a $35 dollar bottle of Chilean that goes for ten bucks at the LCBO. Over-friendly and inattentive server sloshed practically a whole bottle into two glasses.

Why is it so hard to find a place downtown to share an interesting, reasonably priced bottle of wine?

Suggestions Welcome!

  1. When Frisco lost their sommelier, they lost a good man. He's at Hal Burgers now. Hopefully they'll take advantage of his knowledge. They do have the best wine-burger pairing in town. Seriously.
