Our Story

Inspired by the neighborhoods of Paris, Côte de Boeuf is Toronto’s local bistro bar à vin and traditional style butcher shop for the Trinity-Bellwoods area and beyond.  

Our beef is locally sourced and butchered in house, old-way, by handsaw and our chefs make their own varieties of terrines and foie gras.

All can be purchased at our shop or experienced straight from the butcher’s block through our selection of dining options: walk-ins at the Bar à Vin, reservations at our Butcher’s Table or privatization of the entire shop with dinner option at our Chef's Table.



Take a trip around France by the glass while sitting at our bar and discover Languedoc, Loire, Burgundy or Bordeaux in a cozy bistro ambiance.


Come sit at our zinc bar or wooden barrel tables and enjoy menus that offer lunch, dinner and apéro 7/7.


Try some of our French classics from our bistro menu - steak frites, tartar “au couteau”, escargots, crème brulée - or discover our daily changing chalkboard menus.

Butcher Shop

Old School

Once a week, our artisan butchers bring in locally sourced beef and pork over the shoulder - old school style - then hand sawed and butchered at the back of the shop.

Select a côte de boeuf, rib eye, NY strip, tenderloin, fresh ground beef or try our pork chops, bacon and house sausages — made fresh every week.

Our shop carries a fine selection of Canadian produce and we source our charcuterie from the Auvergne region, which is famous for its charcuterie and cheese. It is then hung in our window to dry and age to give it all the flavours of France. Our house made terrines and foie gras are the best in town!
