With more than 30 years in the beef business, Springfield Butcher sates meaty yearnings with a dazzling spectrum of proteinaceous products. Prime filet mignon ($21.99/lb.) hot-steps across sizzling palates, and house-made sausages entertain tongue buds with offerings that include the unpredictable italian sausage’s dual hot and mild personalities ($4.99/lb.) House-made jumbo-lump crab cakes ($6.99+) satisfy oceanic appetites and can be purchased in quantities large enough to fortify expeditions in search of cell-phone reception on Atlantis.
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.
