The issue with Florence & Pino is that they are closed Sundays. Which is actually a huge pia for me.

Flannery is worth every dollar  :P  :) . They will age and cut to your specifications. And the quality of the meat is outstanding.

I am constantly being blown away by the quality of the meat at Foster Sundry on Knickerbocker.  Strip steaks and a whole big chunk of coppa recently. They are doing real butchery in the shop.

 

The selection and quantities are limited. It's not a place to go with the exclusive intention of buying a particular cut; more a place to go and see what's best on the day.  I know it's not convenient for everyone, but at least it combines easily with a trip to Henry's Wine & Spirits two blocks away.

I shop there too and agree with you about the quality of the meat, but we’re friends with the owner and I’m hesitant to post about it. that’s even further from home though, although we’re in the neighborhood once a week nowadays.

that coppa is awesome and I got some really nice ranch steaks (a part of the chuckflap I guess) last time I was there that were $15 a pound.

thanks for the manhattan recommendations, I’ll definitely use those for the next big steak or leg of lamb.

I can’t get there all the time, but every couple of weeks it fits in with visits to some good local bars, Human Relations bookstore etc. Pig’s head terrine, good cheeses, and those rather showy, expensive beans from that guy in California.

Oddly they don’t have them at my local store anymore.

My local stores are pathetic.

There's not a Union Market? Cause I think RG's beans are carried by them, at least by the one on Houston.
