Hi - Anyone know of a place that makes there own house cured meats or gets them from a local meat shop that is good? I am thinking the best bet would be Italian place but I am open to anything. I would love to hear recommendations.
I like the basement-grotto bar at Peasant for this as well.
The Butcher's Platter Royale at Blue Ribbon Bakery is unbelievable. Enormous, and worth every single solitary penny.
Butcher’s Platter Royale 55.00Saucison, Viande, Coppa, Sopressata, Serrano, Cotto, Tongue, Rillette, Pate and Foie Gras
Il Buco and Savoy both do a lot of house cured meats. I had a great cured tongue at Savoy last week and I have had some wonderful dry cured hams and sausages at both places over time.
I don't believe Il Buco is curing their own meats after the departure of Chef Ed Witt.
Lupa. Order a lot. They bring it on a wooden platter. Very very good. But order a lot because they slice it real thin.
My favorite meat/cheese plates: Lupa, Inoteca, Crispo
the cool modern greek restaurant PAREA house cures their own meats. the meat board is varied & very tasty ($23). they have a great greek wine list to go along with it.
Lupa or Otto.
Don't know if it's the best, but it is what it is ... look under Menus,
Click on *Antipasti* and look for Salumi, Formaggi, e Vino ... [For two people] $30

I think Faicco's on Bleeker may still do so ... I think there was a relatively recent article in the NYT about meat curing as a dying art or affected by increasing regulation etc.
