Does anyone know who the meat supplier is for Prime Grill and or Solo in New York? Or perhaps how i would attempt to track down that information? Thank you in advance.

    Just call and ask to speak to the mashgiach. He (or she, but 99.9% of the time it's a he) should be able to tell you.

      I doubt that they only have one supplier. They would not limit themselves in that way. By having more than one,they help to ensure that if one supplier does not send them what they need,another one hopefully will.

        1. Most places do have one supplier

        2. If they have more than one, the mashgiach can still tell you which one they have in stock today, or if they have more than one you can order from the one you like.

        Ally and Rubashkin. The kosher meat mafia.

        They may get USDA choice or prime. Typical kosher butchers (in my area) don't get prime.

          Superburns is correct. PG/Solo (same company) are the only high-end kosher restaurants in the city to use Agriprocessors.

            Good for them. I may try them some time soon, if I come into some cash.

              Interestingly...most "high end" restaurants use a combination of agri and rubashkin, depending on what they are ordering....I believe both sell USDA prime or equivalent. You can get your butcher to order you prime, but expect to pay for it. There is now a Jewish guy selling kosher American Waygu, but i doubt you will find it, maybe PG/SOLO. AT A VERY HIGH PRICE.

                Agri and Rubashkin are the same company. You're probably thinking of Alle. The people in the industry who I've spoken to, though, feel that stuff from Agri/Rubashkin is lower in quality and therefore go with Alle or with one of the smaller places.
