We’re excited to welcome a new restaurant to Leslieville’s Queen Street East – CORE!

“CORE by definition means “the part of something that is central to its existence or character”

We are pleased to bring CORE Restaurant to Leslieville where hospitality and service are a part of our
core, and by extension we aim to become a part of the core of the community.

Passion is what drives us. A passion for fresh, seasonal ingredients, a passion for working with our local
community, passion for hospitality and service, these are integral in our beliefs, and we hope you see
that passion on our plates, décor, and service.

With over 25 years combined experience in hospitality around the globe, our CORE is here in Leslieville,
and we look forward to bringing our passion to you nightly. We aim to get to know you all as neighbours
and friends, and take care of each of you as if you were in our home, because at the end of the day, you

La Paella, Leslieville’s newest restaurant is a great alternative to a Spanish vacation – something we could all use from Toronto right now!
