After six years of holding sway at the back of the Brooklyn Kitchen cookshop, partners Brent Young and Ben Turley have packed up their bacon-cheeseburger sausages and hauled them over to a butcher-cum-grocery of their own. The larger space has room for all that pastured beef, lamb, and pork, plus a greater variety of prepared foods including roast chicken, smoked BBQ ribs, and grab-and-go sandwiches made nearby at the Meat Hook Sandwich Shop. As far as what this means for your pantry, think “way more classic than Brooklyn-curated,” says Young. Translation: Clear some shelf space for Duke’s Mayonnaise, Szeged Rib Rub, and Ritz Crackers.
