New butcher in Leslieville?

Just saw a sign posted in the window of some old hair salon on Queen at Jones, saying an organic butcher and fine foods shop will be opening soon. EXACTLY what the 'hood needs! Anyone have anything to report?

      Now that's a good scoop....can't wait to check it out.

        Basically right at the corner on the south side of Queen, I think the old sign on the place says "Perfection Hair & Nails" or something like that.

      2. What a great find, how is the meat?

          Hasn't opened yet, the little sign saying coming soon literally went up a few days ago. I'm just getting it out there now, so we can all figure it out and be the first to make friends with the owners and have grass-fed organic hangar steaks cut especially for us.

          1. Haven't been by in a bit - anyone seen any progress w/this place?

            1. Just passed by it today and nothing but the sign at the door. Only new thing to report is the exact address to our new organic butcher shop for the near future. It's 1175 Queen Street East. :)

                  And the name of the shop is "Lady & Son Butchery" which is all kinds of awesome.

                      Wow! Paula Dean is opening a butcher shop in Leslieville?

                        I checked out Paula Deen's website for "Lady & Sons" and didn't find any mention of a Leslieville location.

                          I think that was a joke regarding the name of the place...tee hee.
