Is there a great meat market that carries dry-aged prime beef?

    Sorry, Bob, I'm not sure there is such a thing. Avrils on Court Street gets local fans but if yoy're looking for a New York or Chicago type butcher I haven't found it.

      Are Jungle Jim's prime meats any good?

        Jungle Jim's has an excellent meat dept. including their own aged meats. I don't know of any other butchers that have aged beef.

        I haven't tried Jungle Jim's meats, so I can't say anything about them. There's a great butcher on the east side, Summit Meats. I've never looked for dry-aged, but the stuff I've had is phenomenal. There are also a few butchers at Findley Market worth checking out.

          I bet either Jungle Jim's or the guys just as you go in to Findley Market you know, not all the way into - across from the little Italian place - could get you what you wanted.

            The one at Findley Market might be Eckerlein. I've never bought any beef there but their goetta is the best and their pepper bacon is terrific too.

            Do you mean Eckerlin Meats? Across from Bella Luna?

              Has anyone tried Bridgetown Finer Meats? I'm curious whether or not it is good - particularly for dry-aged beef.

                The steaks I've had from Bridgetown Finer Meats have been really terrific. Don't know much about the details of what they carry.

                  This topic has been dormant for quite some time, but is worthy of revival, so I'm going to continue it on the new Great Lakes board.
