Marky and Sparky's Big Reveal

Throughout February, the former location of
Butcher by Nature was undergoing an incredible
transformation. At the corner of Annette Street
and Runnymede Road, construction and film crews from Restaurant Takeover were working away on the latest eatery addition to Bloor West Village: Marky and Sparky’s. Friends and neighbours, including our SNAP team, were invited to the big reveal. The smokehouse is
an extremely inviting space where owners Marcus and Frank will be focusing on creating the best possible food for their customers. Everything they do is made with top-notch meats using rubs and barbecue sauces created from scratch and full of fresh, local ingredients. Stop by 520 Annette Street and get smokin’.
