Who’s your favorite butcher? We’ll give your taste buds some options!
B&A Pork Store
Located in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, B&A Pork Store has been serving the community for over 40 years. Owner, Bob Brannigan Sr. originally started off only offering pork products and evolved into prepared foods (we recommend the rice balls), all types of meats and specialty items like his famous, hand-made fresh mozzarella! Today, B&A Pork Store is able to reach the masses with National Shipping.
Honest Chops Butchery
Three friends – Russell, Bassam and Khalid – were frustrated by the lack of decent halal meat options in New York City. They wanted to create a transparent and radically simple meat store accessible to all New Yorkers. From their farms to their butchers to your kitchen, Honest Chops promises to be honest all along. The proof is in the meat – the delicious, ethically-sourced, halal meat! Try for yourself and taste the difference…
If you’re in the Chicago area and looking for quality meats, look no further than Paulina Market. Paulina’s has always been a Butcher Shop, Sausage-Maker, and Smokehouse…now they’re also a commercial kitchen and a specialty grocer. For everything from weeknight dinners to those special occasion roasts, enjoy the best-quality fresh meat and poultry at this local family-owned butcher shop.
Schatzie the Butcher
Tony Schatzie, a fourth-generation butcher, started keeping the cash register in his father’s store on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx at the age of 11. Sixty years later, Schatzie’s is still a family run establishment. Father and son proudly service Manhattan with high-quality meats, including USDA prime beef, Colorado lamb, milk-fed veal, pork, sausages and free-range poultry. Schatzie the Butcher has become particularly famous for one thing: his high-quality burger meat, which he grinds up fresh every 30 minutes in the shop, and also cooks and serves at the burger joint next door!
Schaller & Weber
Schaller & Weber was the cornerstone of what was once called Yorkville, a flourishing German area of New York City. People spoke German on the street and would eat the foods that reminded them of their homeland. Today, the neighborhood may have changed, but Schaller & Weber still stands the test of time. Now in it’s third generation, Schaller & Weber boast the City’s largest selection of hard-to-find traditional German specialties and award-winning charcuterie products.
