Looking for butcher on West side
- matt nuss
I'm having a hard time finding a butcher around the Venice or Santa Monica area other than at the supermarkets. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
In reply to my query a few months ago about beef in Hollywood-ish, someone suggested the farmer's market @ 3rd and Fairfax. It's the butcher on the north side of the market, near the crepes and cajun chow - good stuff, and I hear the lamb is fabulous. I also tried the Bristol Farms in BH and was bowled over by their selection and knowledgeable staff (thanks, Cindy). My nearby favorite is Whole Foods.
Below is the link to the previous discussion if I can do this right.
Harvey's Guss Meat Co. @ Ogden Dr. and Olympic Blvd. distributes fine meats to restaurants. I don't know if they sell retail.
