Prime Dry Aged Beef In Fairfield County?

Anyone know a butcher who sells prime dry aged beef near Stamford?

    1. And Stew Leonard's in Danbury.

      But also, check out Milillo Farms on Bailey Avenue in Ridgefield. Although Stew's in Danbury may have more selections, the quality at Milillo's is outstanding. You can also special order at Milillo's. Once you visit Millilo's you'll instantly know it's a hidden gem.

      Another independent store that often has prime beef - Ancona's Market in Ridgefield. Excellent customer service there, and pick up some of their fried chicken at their deli counter for a quick snack.

      EDIT: I just realized you asked for "dry aged" and I don't know about that.

      1. I think Fairway sells dry aged prime

        1. Fairway in Stamford has dry aged prime. As does Greenwich Prime Meats in Greenwich.

          Stews does NOT carry dry aged. Until Fairway came a long most of their beef was ungraded, not even choice.

            I bought it there, not in the last 6 months,but they had it.

              TGS, that really is surprising. I have shopped Stews for years and never seen dry aged. I can't imagine it fits into the profile of their customer. So If I were the OP, I'd call before I ventured up there. Or just go over to, Fairway in Stamford since it's "nearer", as is Greenwich Prime. The bone in aged Rib Eye at both is phenomenal.

                Greenwich Prime meats are the former Manero's guys; they know their stuff and the steaks I've gotten from them have always been awesome, but they're not cheap.

                By the way, for those who remember the old Manero's meat shop days, the GPM guys do have a kitchen at their new location, and they still crank out a killer cheeseburger or steak wedge. (and their steak wedge is an actual steak on a wedge, not thinly sliced meat) Don't forget the fried onions and steak sauce!

                  Isn't the dry aged meat at the special corner right after dairy??

              If your up for a trip to NYC this butcher shop is great.
