True to its name, The Butcher Shop does in fact have a freezer filled with hanging meat in the dining room. But we actually prefer to use this place as a wine bar instead. It’s an intimate spot with a great wine list and a strong selection of small plates, particularly the charcuterie. Make it a regular date night spot and you’ll be happy.
