I'm looking for carpaccio and I have no idea where to find it. Any good ideas?

No TUNA!

    At a restaurant, or from a butcher? At a restaurant, honestly the Vietnamese do it really well, although there was an INCREDIBLE carpaccio at Alla Spina about a month ago - dry aged beef, yum. From a butcher, anyone in the Italian market, and any other Bircher I am sure

      Good call, I wasn't even thinking of making it myself.

      Which vietnamese places do it? They usually have a raw beef salad. Although delicious, I'm really hoping for the traditional version.

      Sapori in Collingswood does a fairly good one.

        I remember having a terrific beef carpaccio at Bistro Romano a few years ago.
