  1. The place that springs to mind is Citarella. Their meats and fish are always fresh and excellent.

      i just called them, THEY HAVE IT, thank you very much, you dont know how i like that. thank you again.

    2. Do you want to buy the meat and slice it yourself? I also like the meats at Citarella, but have not seen the dish already prepared there.

        i used to buy already sliced between parchment paper and frozen. But i just called Citarella and they have it. I guess i will buy today. lol

          That's great - I'd never heard of it presliced etc. So Citarella is going to slice it for you?

            the lady said that they have already sliced, i just hope is very thin, cause i found once but was a bit thick and i like very thin. i will try to go there today or tomorrow. To sliced yourself is a work, need to freeze the meet and cut with a special knife, i used to use electric ones.

              Thanks - will you let us know how it is? This is a dish we love, but I've never thought of having at home.

                I purchased it before from Citarella. They sliced it but the slices were WAY too thick for carpaccio. I was not happy that time!

                I think you will have to pound it as davisready suggested, so you can buy the whole piece, freeze it a bit, and slice it yourself.

                  i went there yesterday, it is thin enough for me , i wont need to pound heheheh. was frozen and in parchment paper, went directly to my freezer for friday night. later i will tell you if worked fine.
