I'm looking for a butcher just north of Boston in either Chelsea, Revere or Saugus. Any suggestions?

    I've always had better luck luck with McKinnons in Somerville, Everett's Marinated meats always seem off to me.

      I just came from Pace's- got some really beautiful veal cutlets. They are pricey ( $19.95 lb), but look so good. I have had good luck with their veal, chicken and lamb. Their sausages, though made on site, are just ok. Have not tried their beef, but it looks amazing.
      ALso love McKinnons in Everett. Prices are better than Pace's and the meat is great. Have heard good things about their marinated meats, but have never tried them myself.
