In its third generation as a family-owned butcher shop, Yore Butchers wields a meat-carving team that draws upon a lifetime’s worth of slicing experience to produce pristinely fresh cuts and prepared foods. Sink mouth mincers into the shop's USDA Choice or higher meats, such as thin sausage with cheese and parsley ($5.99/lb.) or Italian-style veal cutlets ($12.99/lb.), each of which comes with a letter of recommendation from its peers. Customers can also pick from Yore's line of specialty items and ready-to-cook dishes.
Gina and Anthony, the owners of S&D Catering, have been involved with the business for more than 30 years. Homemade sausages swing from racks inside the storefront, a touching reminder of the sausages Gina’s grandfather, Dominick, used to make when he founded S&D Catering more than 80 years ago. Anthony met the family when he began working in Dominick's S&D pork store in 1969, and has worked with the family ever since. As Gina’s father began to take over the business, the model expanded, and today they provide authentic, freshly made home-style fare for any occasion. Gina and her team whip up a smorgasbord of international flavors, ranging from Italian staples such as lasagna and baked ziti to wienerschnitzel and chili con carne. They slice up tender cold cuts for gigantic heroes that span up to 6 feet, but the biggest thing about S&D Catering is the selection. They also prepare dishes that range from barbecue spare ribs and southern fried chicken to shish kebabs, swedish meatballs, and kielbasa with sauerkraut.

Lifelong friends Justin Rosberg and Jason Parent designed The Meat House to re-create the personal atmosphere of bygone neighborhood butchers. At locations around the country, knowledgeable butchers carve beef, poultry, pork, and other meats onsite and discuss cuts with customers. They can also suggest wine pairings from a list of bottles curated by a certified wine educator or marry meats to signature rubs and marinades for more flavorful cooking and grilling. For more adventurous palates, staffers will also seek out sources of wild game, such as alligator, ostrich, and boar, upon request.
