Butcher shop with beef fondue

Hello there

Any advice on a good butcher shop in Boston where we could find meat for beef fondue (the thin slices)? There is something called "shaved beef" at Fresh Pond's Whole Food but this is not thin enough.

Thanks

    You don't need a butcher for this. Wrap your chosen slab o' beef in plastic, pop it in the freezer for 30 minutes, unwrap it, and take a sharp knife to it: not hard to get paper-thin slices yourself at all.

      John Dewar in Wellesley or Newton can do this for you.
