Whether it needed one or not, the Ossington strip has gained yet another epicurean attraction. The peckish and thirsty can now dine (and wine) while shopping for dry-aged steak and heritage chicken at Côte de Boeuf, the neighbourhood’s famously fancy butcher shop. Last month, brothers Chasen Gillies and Teo Paul (of Union) began hosting “Baron Rouge Nights” four nights a week, during which they turn their grocery store into a low-key, sit-down watering hole. Inspired by Le Baron Rouge, a popular Parisian wine bar, Côte de Boeuf is offering a selection of bites including freshly shucked oysters, charcuterie, cheese platters and tartiflette (a gooey casserole made with bacon, potato and cheese). The fully licensed space can seat up to nine, with enough room left between its repurposed-wine-barrel tables for late-night shoppers looking to stock their pantries.

Thurs.–Sun., 5 p.m.–10 p.m., 130 Ossington Ave., 416-532-2333, cdbossington.com
