A Smokehouse with a
Distinct Modern Flair
Classic Southern smoking methods and traditional ingredients heavily influence Bootleg Smokehouse, re-imagining beloved smoked dishes with contemporary plating and pairings for a refined culinary experience. Holding a steadfast dedication to hospitality from the kitchen to the dining room, we strive to provide a taste of ‘Southern Hospitality’ within the heart of Toronto. Located in a former historic home dating back to 1888, Bootleg Smokehouse holds a piece of Toronto’s history within its walls, with a contemporary interior it is the perfect environment to indulge.
We offer a range of delicious cocktails, local craft beer and a variety of wine and spirits, designed to pair with our smoke infused flavours.
