Butcher on North Shore LI?

abu applesauce Mar 13, 2008 07:47 AM

I live in Sea Cliff. I don't have a butcher yet. I know "My Private Butcher" moved to Bernard's and that their stuff is very good, but it's very expensive. North Shore Farm butcher is pretty weak IMO. Any suggestions?
Also, I am looking for lamb shanks to braise this weekend. North Shore doesn't carry them and Bernard's could order them, but not by the weekend. I would imagine that a butcher serving the Persian community in Roslyn might regularly carry lamb shanks, or Great Neck. Please help!
Thanks.

    Closest butcher to SC I know of is: Birch Hill Meats
    153 Birch Hill Road, Locust Valley, NY 11560

    BTW, I agree Bernard's is expensive not only for butchering but everything they sell.

      Prime Time also has a new location on Willis Avenue in Roslyn Heights. Agreed that they are not cheap. There is also Ceriello's, further south on Willis Ave. in Williston Park. They have an excellent butcher counter and can probably get you lamb shanks if they don't have them. The Persian community in Roslyn is kosher, so you can try a kosher butcher if you want, it is true that they may have it. Be careful when you ask for lamb shanks right now though. They may be thinking you are asking for a shankbone for Passover.

          what about Fairway in Plainview? a drive from sea cliff, but their butcher section along with olives, cheese coffee etc is amazing
