Preparing great cuisine calls for an assortment of great ingredients, whereas preparing lackluster fare requires but a single dusting of soot. Strive for succulence with the help of today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet groceries at Amano Boucherie.
This full-service butcher shop and French market stocks its shelves with fine organic and artisanal goods. Grass-fed beef arrives in everything from burger-ready ground pounds ($4.95) to tenderloin cuts ($27.99 per pound), and free-range Amish chickens are available whole ($2.99 per pound), tasting like chicken, or in boneless, skinless breast fillets ($4.99 per pound). Eco-conscious pescatarians can enjoy sustainable seafood such as Atlantic salmon ($10.99 per pound) and Canadian whitefish ($7.99 per pound), and completely vegetarian gourmands can benefit from shelves of epicurean butters, fresh breads, organic produce, fragrant flowers, vibrant seasonings, and more. Groupon customers are invited to attend the grand opening celebration of Amano Boucherie on Saturday, February 19, from 11 a.m.—4 p.m.
The deluxe grocery is the brainchild of Marco Conte, owner and chef of the acclaimed Café Amano. Shoppers sick of confusedly placing prepped casseroles in the dishwasher can figure out what to do with their new gourmet wares by attending hands-on cooking classes.
