Butcher for tartar in the Mile-End area


My girlfriend and I are doing this crazy raw-food diet and 4 days in I desperately need some meat so I was planing on making steak tartar for dinner tonight. I was going to go to Chez Vitos for my steak, but they are closed for Vacation until the 13th of August.

Can anyone recommend another Butcher in the area where I could get some dependable meat for tartar?

  1. If it has in fact reopened and if you're not adverse to paying for quality, Anjou-Québec will certainly fill the bill. Other than that: Marché Latina?

      Anjou Quebec was slated to reopen this week. Have they managed to meet the deadline?

      If not, Latina's is a good second choice while Vito's is closed.

        They were open yesterday. Lots of helium-filled balloons. Didn't have time to pop in but it looks like the layout is slightly different and the renovations aren't yet complete.

          Well hell. Now I know what I'm having for dinner tonight!

            Stopped into Anjou Quebec for my confit fix (damn I've missed that place!). The place has a more spacious, sterile quality. It's a step up from the old look, which I found a bit on the dark and gloomy side, but other than the brighter lighting and slightly more spaced coolers, it hasn't changed much.
