Meat Monger in the ‘hood

Recently did a double-take as I drove home up Americana Boulevard and passed the former home of Reel Foods (the fish monger’s over on Capitol in a sweet new location) under the Connector overpass and across from the skate park.

What did my eyes spy in the window? Could that be a meat monger in that space?


Why yes, yes it is. Merry Christmas to this non-vegetarian! And welcome to the ‘hood Prime Cuts Butcher Shop!

Per their website

It’s butcher shop meets slaughter house meets grocery retail at a professional and custom level. The customer is always first and where quality and service come first!!

I may not be hunting and gathering my meat (just yet), but I can appreciate a true butcher shop and look forward to the retail opening.

Perhaps Prime Cuts could also start offering butchery lessons in the near future – I’d be a happy first registrant for that and I’m sure there are quite a few other foodies in town that would be interested as well.
