Springfield Butcher has been filling bellies and empty barbecue pits with fresh, hand-cut steaks and seafood for more than 30 years. Prime cuts of beef range from filet mignon and Prime rib roast to flank steak, cube steak, and fun-size steaks perfect for trick-or-treaters. Other protein options run the gamut from Danish-style pork ribs to game meats including buffalo and wild boar.
Sausages made in-house are available smoked or un-smoked, and bacon wraps its smoky flavor around scallops, which?like the rest of the shop's seafood offerings?are delivered fresh every day, except Sunday. Those looking to go from stove to table as quickly as possible can also opt for oven-ready entrees such as chicken cordon bleu or pork chops with onion stuffing.
Brothers and business partners James and Adam Roth fill their store with a cornucopia of curated artisan foods, from cheese and chocolate to wine and beer. A chalkboard outside the shop's modern colonial windows introduces visitors to the featured cheese of the week. As visitors enter, wine racks and displays sprawl before them, cradling more than 500 different bottles from across the world. The shelves of vino lead toward the back of the store, where cases of artisan cheese and meats lie in tantalizing splendor. The selection spans the cheese spectrum. Goat's-milk cheeses give tenderly beneath knives, and the tissue-like bloomy rinds of soft cheese split aromatically. Crimson wax cloaks firm wheels of cheddar studded with mustard seeds or Cajun spices, and the resident cheesemongers also marinate their own sheep-milk feta with herbs.
Salami and p?t?s beg to flesh out cheese plates along with a weekend selection of crusty bread and pastries. An ever-rotating stock of beers generally includes more than 300 varieties of local and international brews. Tartness leaps from lambics, traditional Belgian beers fermented with wild yeasts and aged in barrels, and dark-roasted malt lends a chocolate hue to Duck Rabbit Schwarzbier crafted in North Carolina. On weekends, the tasting room fills with the chatter of patrons learning to detect grassy notes in samples of wine or guess when a sommelier has been rolling around the in the grass.
Cravings for hard-to-find treats from the UK come here for their just deserts. Classic Cigars and British Goodies boasts rows of indulgent chocolate treats, such as Cadbury Crunchie bars, and flaunts a selection of international beers that can assist any living room in its dreams to become a British pub some day. Cigars encasing tobaccos from the likes of Honduras and the Dominican Republic send olfactory beacons from their boxes within the walk-in humidor, and cigarette lovers who prefer the sweet drag of an import may find just the right blend among the shop’s selection.
