Butcher shop restaurant with a menu for grazing
Tipple of choice: The True Grit cocktail of Duke bourbon, fresh grapefruit, honey syrup, bitters, and lemon zest is a hit. Or if it’s the weekend, you could do worse than bottomless brunchtime mimosas.
Word to the wise: Their al fresco upstairs patio is a pretty good place to enjoy your meal, particularly since the gentle breeze should alleviate any meat sweats.
If you care about the provenance of your produce and think sharing is caring, then this spot in upmarket Tivoli Village should definitely be on your radar. Behind the faux-period facade, you’ll encounter a two-storey dining space that’s minimalist bordering on bare, but fortunately the constant buzz of conscientious staff and well-fed patrons compensates for any lack of decor.
The sizable menu features an array of small plates (pork belly and spicy slaw), sandwiches (wine-soaked goat’s cheese), and seafood (horseradish-crusted butterfish), but given they have their own butcher shop downstairs, you would be remiss to skip the soundly sourced steak. Cut to order and charged by the ounce, their tender cuts are the perfect prelude to a dream dessert menu comprised entirely of sundaes.
