The Black Hoof


Opened in early October 2008.

Everything is made: from the charcuterie to the cocktail garnishes. It’s a meat and off-cut centric menu to be sure, but there is always a fish option (sometimes, even a veggie option). There is much attention to detail in the service. The atmosphere is boisterous and casual.

Come eat.

          White Wine By The Glass

          • falerioCiu Ciu, Le Marche, 11Dry as the day is long. Blanched almonds, unripe pineapple and citrus notes with a lazer-sharp acidity that just gets you salivating. Great, great value.9/42
          • riesling (goldberg)Johann Peter Mertes, Mosel, 10Obvs, I LOVE riesling. It's the best. This lovely number dances on your palate with the tips of a thousand pointe shoes, hitting all your flavour receptors. Off-dry, balanced acidity with bright citrus and green apple notes. And for god's sake, if you're having the sweetbreads, have them with this wine. Riesling with everything!11/50
          • vermentino (IGT)Prelius, Maremma, 11Peaches and cream nose, beautiful, firm tropical fruit and the impression of sunshine and optimism. You could be standing in a field of white flowers, or more likely, you're in a restaurant, your nose deep in your wine glass, amazed by the elegance and finesse of a simple, stainless-steel fermented white wine.12/55

          Red Wine By The Glass

          • gamayFielding, Niagara, 11When I first tasted this, very shortly after bottling, I hated it. Turns out I should have been more patient (not one of my strengths). 'Cause now, I love it. Velvet flowers and a bracing acidty that mellows and warms on the palate. Perfect Ontario gamay.10/45
          • corbièresLes Clos Perdus, Languedoc, 10A Hoof favourite, I just keep buying all of it, every time it's released. Very seductive nose of red cherries and blossoms. Full-bodied yet, still light and lifted, bursting with fresh blueberries and warm spices. Just infinitely drinkable.14/65
          • syrah/garnacha (sotorrondero)Jiménez-Landi, Méntrida, 10A great year for central Spain, I fell HARD for this wine. I stupidly bought 10 cases, despite it being a liiiiiitle pricey, but I just couldn't stop myself. One sip of earthy, soft-fruit, spicy warmth and you'll know why. Absolutely worth every penny, and fuck it, we should all live a little. You'll just have to take my word that this is a really, really good deal.16/76
