Hot Dining: Hoof Raw Bar Offers Hip Fish and Seafood

It’s hard to overstate the effect The Black Hoof has had on meat eating in this city. Since its late-2008 opening, the hipster hot spot specializing in high-end charcuterie and artisan cocktails has spawned numerous imitators. Such has been the formula’s success that its creators decided to replicate it for themselves in the Hoof Raw Bar, which does for seafood what its predecessor did—and continues to do—for meat. You can probably imagine what that means for the menu: heaps of shellfish, shareable offerings like squid salad or raw scallops, and a quartet of cured fish make for great bait; a finely honed list of wines and spirits helps ensure you’ll be well and truly hooked.
