The Black Hoof Restaurant Review

: The Black Hoof’s charcuterie, smoked and cured in-house, satisfies carnivore cravings. From the chef’s backyard smoker might come pork belly pastrami, while the charcuterie board could include elk or boar salami, pancetta and thinly sliced bresaola. Fresh-made pasta may be served with a nettle sauce or stuffed with oxtail. The menu changes constantly, according to the chef’s passions and finds. Those in the know give their cell phone number to the hostess and make their way across the street to Hoof Café at Raw Bar to enjoy a cocktail or two created by partner Jen Agg, a talented mixologist. The café has a full menu of its own to enjoy, and the cocktail bar is the place to hang for classic and modern libations as well as addictive bar snacks.
