Butchers & Fishmarkets

My Hubbie & I used to always got to Palladio's in Boca Raton for the Best Fish (freshest you'll ever find) and for specialty order of meat. Unfortunately they closed down... :(
We went to Kings & Whole Foods but weren't very impressed with their fishes....
Does anybody know about any good fishmarkets in the Delray / Boca area (or further away, fine too!) and any butchers for specialty meats?!
Thanx so much!!! I know it's not a restaurant question, but it's about Chow right...?!

  1. In Coral Springs..I know they supply many of the local restaurants. If you want something specific you can call them and they will get it for you.
    All Seas Seafood
    7830 Wiles Rd
    Coral Springs, FL 33067
    (954) 346-3474

    Also, in many of the Doris Markets they have a Fish Peddler vendor. The original Fish Peddler is down in Sunrise off University and 44th (south of Comercial-north of Oakland)

    My favorite butcher is DelPresto, Atlantic Blvd and 441 in Margate. They will cut whatever you want. I usually call my order in advance. Their porterhouse steaks and italian sausage are awesome! 954-972-4020

    1. Palladio was excellent for fish. Now that it's closed I usually go to Old Dixie Seafood which is on Dixie Hwy a mile or so north of Yamato.

      The only butcher I know of is the Meating Place. I think there are two locations, both in Boca. The meats are reliably good and the men behind the counter are helpful as long as you don't have to special order something.

      1. Yeah, I miss Palladio too. For seafood try Pop's (131 W. Hillsboro Blvd. Deerfield Beach 954-427-1331) They were picked "best seafood" by the New Times

        I know some friends that swear by the Meating Place in Boca (368-1191, 277 E Palmetto Park Rd) but my wife and I prefer Mario's in Delray (499-7019, 14530 Military Trail just north of Atlantic.) It's a real Italian-American butcher shop.

        If you're looking for great sausages and other specialty items, go south to Emil's European Sausage Kitchen (954-942-3944, 1384 S. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach, ) They have a great selection, their meats are top quality, and Walter and Julia are good people.

        1. Thanx for all your help!
          definetely gonna check them out!

          1. Does anyone actually know why Palladio closed????
