The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Tap Into the New South in Richmond


4. Insider’s Tip

Get quick, impromptu butchering lessons at Belmont Butchery.  

There are no regularly scheduled classes at Carytown’s Belmont Butchery, the carnivorous compound where Meat Hook founder Brent Young got his start. But weekday walk-ins can get free ten-minute tutorials on whatever proprietor Tanya Cauthen and her merry band of meat maestros are doing. Watch the experts break down rare-breed Berkshire hogs or carve a side of Buffalo Creek beef, then pick up some housemade guanciale to go (charcuterie starts at $5.50 per quarter pound).
