The Black Hoof initially sounds like the place you would go on a dare. From horse tartare to tongue on brioche, the menu can read like an episode of Fear Factor. Don't let your preconceptions fool you, as it is truly carnivore heaven. Open since 2008, The Hoof has demonstrated the joys of offal and other unusual bits of animals. It has gained acclaim and the fondness of many, including the adventurous palate of Anthony Bourdain. People line up nightly for this hot spot. Expect to make reservations, and if you need to wait for a table you can choose one of the inspiring cocktails. Owner Jen Agg's mixology background shows in the cocktail menu, which makes use of a wide variety of liquors, juices and spices.

- Best Restaurants: "The Black Hoof openly admits that their hours are weird. Although most Toronto restaurants close Monday, The Black Hoof closes Tuesday and Wednesday. On other nights it opens at 6pm and closes at midnight. What else would you expect from an inventive nose-to-tail establishment?"
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: An imaginative take on a new trend, with fresh food that is made entirely in house, from the charcuterie to the cocktail garnishes.
