Best butcher in Calgary.

Leibowitz Jun 25, 2012 08:11 PM

So, in your experiences, what is the best butcher in Calgary? Beltline would be nice, and I already know Second to None, which is alright, I guess.

Also, as a corollary, does anyone know where I can pick up either a full a bone-on or, at least, untied Rib-eye of AAA quality? You'd think it wouldn't be such a problem in the heart of cattle country. The tied ones just fall to pieces on the grill.

    I was quite happy with the dry-aged bone-in ribeye that I got at the Midtown Co-op a few weeks ago.

      I shop at Midtown all the time and buy from the counter. Where did you find a bone in ribeye? I've only ever seen the trimmed and tied version there.

        They had a nice selection of some dry aged ones a few weeks ago. Haven't seen them there since, maybe it's only periodically??

          Probably. Shame I missed it.
