Toronto's newest butcher shop is also a bar

Toronto has a new butcher shop and bar rolled into one thanks to the folks behind Barque Smokehouse. Butcher Bar has just opened its doors in the space previously occupied by Smock Cafe at 287 Roncesvalles. The business will function as a full service butcher by day and a bar with an intriguing selection of wine and beer on tap by night.

There's food too, of course. Think of Barque's menu but pared down into smaller plates, snack-focused plates. Some menu highlights include chorizo ribs ($12), a poutine waffle ($9), and a jerk fried Cornish hen ($11). The menu is a bit more playful than up the street, which pairs well with the hybrid concept on offer.

This is what you've been waiting for, meat lovers.
