Animal Restaurant is a meat-lovers dream. They were one of the first in the nose-to-tail movement and it shows. All of the food is deliciously decadent, heavy and super interesting.
Jon Snook and Vinnie Dotolo created a cult with this humble meatery, the first truly hardcore snout-to-tail such operation in town. The cool factor and rocking attitude helped, but the food is also very original and very good, which is what mattered most.
Animal is a carnivore's dream restaurant. Meat, meat, and more meat. Ribs, BBQ Pork Belly, Pig Ears, no animal part goes to waste here.
It's meaty. It's inventive. It's the only place to get beef heart at 11pm. Not to mention pigtails and veal brains. It goes without saying, but don't pass up the oxtail poutine.
