T.O. restau­rant that led culi­nary re­vival set to close

North Toronto Post - - Food -

Toronto restau­ra­teur Jen Agg re­cently an­nounced the clo­sure of her trail­blaz­ing restau­rant, the Black Hoof, over so­cial me­dia. The last day of op­er­a­tion will be Aug. 20, and you can bet the resto will be packed un­til then as food­ies de­scend on Dun­das Street West for one last taste of the cre­ative cui­sine. Agg opened the resto back in 2008 and over the last decade set some of the city’s culi­nary trends, such as char­cu­terie and bone mar­row.The Hoof is also known for its chefs, most no­tably Grant van Gameren. He part­nered with her and helmed the Hoof kitchen dur­ing its for­ma­tive years and fa­mously earned rave re­views from Bri­tish celebrity chef Gor­don Ram­say, among oth­ers. Jen Agg will con­tinue to op­er­ate lively cock­tail spot Rhum Cor­ner and swanky wine bar Grey Gar­dens.
