Neighborhood butchers

  • p

We all know about the famous butcher shops -- Lobel's, Florence, Ottamanelli's, etc.

But with the decline of the neighborhood butcher, are there any non-famous butcher shops left? Are there any little neighborhood butchers remaining in Manhattan?

      1. I don't know if it is famous or not, but I've always been very happy with the service/product at Oppenheimer Meats on Broadway and 98th


        1. Simchick on First Avenue and 52nd Street, in a great little food row:
          Simchik Meats, Ideal Cheese, Pisacane Fish. Wine store across the street.

            It would have been a greater food row if only they, or some of them, would be open on Sundays.

              I agree. I like that little food row, but they all close before I leave work every day, and they're not open Sunday.

              And just so no Simchik fans panic, they're moving very soon, but only like a block or two. So they'll be two blocks north of their current location.

          2. Dom's, on Lafayette, opposite Kenmare.
