There’s a new eatery on the trendy Ossington strip. Taking over the former Crosley’s space, Wilma Snack Bar offers visitors a cozy place to connect with friends and enjoy good food and drinks.
The impressive lineup of snacks pays homage to Italian fare, offering menu items like finocchiona and prosciutto di Parma fresh off the slicer. There’s also a raw bar that offers up oysters and tuna crudo alongside spring vegetables and vitello tartare ‘Piedmontese.’
The most appealing part, though, is that Wilma’s snack menu rotates weekly and includes mouthwatering dishes like duck liver crostini, fried artichokes and papaya. Arugula is served with cacio e pepe vinaigrette and grilled Maitake mushrooms are seasoned with chili condimento and lime.
The snack selection at Wilma can be paired with an extensive cocktail menu that is populated by beer and wine (including a difficult-to-find selection of orange wine) and one-of-a-kind spins on traditional cocktails. For example, Wilma crafts a twist on a negroni, making a blood orange version with Tromba Blanco, Mandarino, vanilla, brown sugar and lime. The restaurant also serves a mojito made with kombucha.
Unique creations, including the Lauren’s After Hours, are available. It’s made with Tromba Blanco, Averna, Kahlua, nutmeg and Lark cold brew, and is offered alongside the Pretty in Pink, crafted with Tanqueray gin, strawberry balsamic, cucumber juice and prosecco.
The snack is open from Wednesdays to Sundays from 4 p.m. until late, offering a late-night casual spot for people to come together and hang out.
Wilma Snack Bar is located at 214 Ossington Ave.
