This upstate nose-to-tail butcher is maniacally strict about the meat they sell at their much-anticipated Park Slope outpost, offering only antibiotic- and hormone-free cuts of humanely slaughtered animals that lived on the pastures of small, sustainable farms and co-ops. All lamb, pork, beef, and poultry come from nearby counties (within a 150-mile radius of the Brooklyn store and 50 miles from the Kingston, NY location) and a daily delivery van loops between the two locations, ensuring supreme freshness. Superlative cuts consist of four-week dry-aged steaks (dry-aged sirloin is the signature cut) and pork tenderloin; other offerings include rotisserie chicken, housemade sausages, nitrate- and nitrite-free house-smoked bacon, and stocks and lard. A carefully selected assortment of boxed, jarred, and frozen specialty foods is also available. Bistro-worthy fittings (white-tile walls, pressed-tin ceilings) allude to the store’s 1901 heritage, while the stroller-parking area and kiddie play space reference the neighborhood’s current reputation as a young-family magnet.
