Brandon Olsen is somewhere in middle America right now, driving across the country seeking adventure and delicious things. But back at the end of October, I sat down at The Black Hoof’s bar to make sure I got in one last meal during Chef Olsen’s last service. And well, do I really need an excuse to eat at The Hoof? Of course not!
You can read my thoughts over the years from my other posts, but wanted to share that I’m still lovin’ The Hoof. The space is comfortable and casual, yet the service is top-notch – knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff are always fun to interact with. And as always, their dishes are delicious. It’s a total bonus that the lighting at the bar is really awesome for taking photos. The steel thread of consistency woven into The Hoof’s fabric by Jen Agg shines through and continues to keep The Black Hoof on top.

I love that you went all out for this! I came back in November so never had the chance to eat when Brandon was chef. We had the foie and nutella. So interesting and delish! Of course, we had to get the charcuterie too! Such a great restaurant.

The Hoof has such a strong menu, even throughout their changes/updates. Always worth going back.
