Manhattan butcher as good as Biancardi's?

Farfalle Aug 12, 2009 09:47 AM

Bianciardi's in the bronx is the probably the best butcher shop that I know of. I am just getting tired of making the trip up there everytime I want great veal, pork or steaks. I'm willing to pay manhattan prices for the convenience, but I cannot find the quality. Anyone have suggestions for a great butcher that stacks up to the 80 year old meat temple on arthur avenue?

      I would definatly recomend Ottomanelli Brothers:


      They have been around for ever and are really nice guys! And they can get just about anything you would want.

        If you are looking for a great Italian butcher in Manhattan, I heartily recommend Pino's on McDougal Street just below Houston.

          Totally agree on Pino--great guy and a great place, and his assistants are all top-notch, too. (His store is located on 149 Sullivan Street, between Houston and Prince.)

          Florence, on Jones Street, get the second vote...
