The Trust Restaurant Group is bringing the Wise Ox, its North Park butcher shop ,to Carlsbad where it’ll be part of the Beacon shopping center in La Costa, opening this November and joining Lofty Coffee and the soon-to-open Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. This will be the second North County project for the local group, which is working on a new Solana Beach location of its Park Boulevard steakhouse, Rare Society.

Chef/owner Brad Wise has been running The Wise Ox since last fall, after taking over existing El Cajon Boulevard butchery The Heart & Trotter. At 1,314-square-feet, the Carlsbad location will have an expanded patio area and offer a butcher case full of of the same cuts of meat featured at the group’s other restaurants like Fort Oak and Cardellino. The store will also sell a selection of prepared food items plus stocks, sauces, beer, and wine.

Though this outpost won’t have its own smoker, unlike North Park, the kitchen will still serve a menu that includes breakfast sandwiches and burgers.
