If you believe that variety is the spice of life, you can get a nice dose of it at David's Fine Meats & Grill, where savory cuts of meat—such as prime beef and other high-quality proteins—are proudly displayed in their meat market. Alongside these traditional cuts, the market also stocks such wild-game offerings as alligator, python, and kangaroo steaks. Owners David and Cristi Cruz make a point to feature both traditional and exotic cuts of meat in their full-service butcher shop and gourmet food store, and the cuts come prepared in myriad ways.
The grill, which opens for breakfast, lunch, and early dinner, prepares dine-in or take-out meals to guests' liking. At the butcher shop, skilled Old World-style meat-cutters can slice up roasts and provide fresh, unprocessed meat—including Wagyu and prime cuts of beef, elk, ostrich, and rabbit—or add all sorts of other ingredients and spices to make ready-to-serve kabobs, tamales, and even suckling pigs. They then butcher-wrap these cuts for take-home meals, supplemented by their own brands of spice rubs, jams, salsas, barbecue sauces, and specialty seasonings. With advance notice, the shop can also process deer, dove, quail, and other wild game by request. For guests who can't wait to eat at home, it's possible to enjoy any cut of meat cooked-to-order at the grill. You can also cap off any meal by adding on some berry tarts or chocolate-covered bacon.
