The Best Bone Marrow in Toronto
The best bone marrow in Toronto can be prised out of restaurants that are embracing this once neglected off-cut and making it the star on menus across town. While considered a delicacy overseas, the grisly classic was instantly popularized by Anthony Bourdain when he singled it out as his would-be death-row meal. Now, Hogtown chefs are endorsing it as part of nose-to-tail movements and tapping into the primal urges of savvy diners ready to dig into this sweet and nutty, ultra-rich indulgence.
Here is where to find the best bone marrow in Toronto.
This restaurant near King and Tecumseth gets their bones from Cumbrae Farms and roasts them to order before sprinkling them with smoked paprika and sugar for a bruleed finish. The savoury sweet delicacy ($11) is served with a lemony parsley, horseradish salad and grilled slices of crusty house-made hearth bread.
At this Junction Triangle tavern, roasted bone marrow is served regularly on the seasonal chalkboard menu as part of a decadent Surf & Turf platter ($35). Another recurring dish dubbed, Heart and Soul ($11) features marrow mixed with chopped grilled water buffalo, cucumber, celery hearts and a shallot vinaigrette.
