This was a lucky find while on vacation. They had just reopened & we were able to dine at the counter & watch the magic. One dish which I don’t tell all my friends about was the horse tartare. I still feel a little guilty...More

The black hoof has had a great history but the new chef James Santon has now taken it over the top. His menu is clever, playful and full of culinary surprises. Highly recommend. Absolutely amazing attention to detail. Great food

The ambiance is really nice here, and they have a lot of unique tapa style dishes. Stop by here for the experience and try the bone marrow, horse tartare and whatever else is exotic to you. The food is good, but the portions are tiny....More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
