Butcher besides Lobel's for veal scalopine?

Been buying veal scalops from Lobel's, which is sliced thin and the best of the best, but their cost has gotten too prohibitive. Any suggestions for comparible quality that is more reasonable?

      I second Ottomanelli's and think they do a better job on veal cutlets or scallopini than Lobel's. Although I have not been to Lobel's in ages. Ottomanelli's is as good today as it was 25 years ago.

        +1 (or is it +2) here on Ottomanelli's veal cutlets.

      2. I've seen beautiful looking veal at Eataly.
