The Black Hoof

The flagship of Jen Agg’s admirable collection of restaurants and bars, the Black Hoof is the place that catapulted charcuterie, offal, and Manhattans into the Toronto dining vernacular in 2008. The outspoken restaurateur is unafraid to ruffle feathers, and her influence on the local culinary scene is undeniable. In this part of the Trinity-Bellwoods neighborhood, you can hop from her Rhum Corner to the Cocktail Bar for a pre- or post-dinner drink. [$$$]
