Meat shops to buy game meats

Anyone know any good butchers/meat shops Manhattan where you can regularly buy game meats (eg bison, venison, elk, ostrich)?

  1. The Gramercy Meat Market on 2nd btwn 22nd and 23rd sells wild game. They usually have a decent amount in stock and they post a sign indicating they will order other game for you.

    Also, at the Union Sq. Greenmarket there is a vendor on saturdays that carries all sorts of bison steaks and roasts.

    1. You might want to post this question on the Outer Boroughs boards as well. I can think of some places on Arthur Ave in the Bronx, but I'm afraid of the Chowhound Big Brothers coming to get me.

      1. re: ballulah

        I did post it on outer boroughs also.

      2. Esposito's on Ninth Avenue around 38th St.

        1. I second Esposito's. Also, Cuzins in the same area (a block away from Espositos, I think).

          1. Ottomanelis on Bleecker has all that you mentioned and if they don't have it, they can get it for you with a days notice.
