Foursquare Tips

  • the tongue sandwich will change your life.
  • Get the charcuterie, marrow, ox tail with scallops and seared foie gras with banana and nutella
  • 1. Hide in the bathroom till everyone leaves 2. Spread blood sausage all over your body. 3. Chug the pasilla chili infused tequila. 4. Go into work in the same clothes w/o showering or sleeping.
  • i have yet to be disappointed by a visit here. always incredible.
  • Date night, Girl night, Treat night? Great night :) No reservations
  • Everythings created in house here, from the cocktails to the charcuterie. Jen Agg also has a little gem across the street, and expectations are high for her newcomer, Rhum Corner. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Order Roasted bone marrow - you won't be disappointed.
  • The foie gras is amazing massive and succulent! And the raw horse Sammy is incredible!!
  • Everything you've heard about foie and Nutella being best friends is true.
  • squid carbonara
  • Raw Horse Sammy is amazing. So is the bone marrow. So is the charcuterie plate. Awesome dining experience - a must for foodies.
  • While waiting for that table, try the bone marrow $8 at the hoof cafe. Same thing but cheaper. The charcuterie plate was a treat!
  • If you are a carnivore and happen to be in Toronto, you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't have a meal here.
  • Dining alone but want to try everything? They'll do half portions of many things on the menu (including the awesome sweetbreads & tongue sammy)
  • Bone marrow and horse tartare is a must try.
  • Dont miss out on the marrow
  • You need to be adventurous to eat here, but its well worth it. Try their most famous dish: sweetbreads, tuna crudo and spicy mayo with jalapeos. For more, follow us on 4sq or at
  • Holy crap get the pork tacos. Best deal on the menu and they're loaded with flavour.
  • With the celebrity of their cured meat at a fever pitch, this will undoubtedly be another busy cocktail culture hub to add to Torontos bar scene.
  • Everything here is amazing. My favourite is the raw horse sammy.
