At this butcher shop and restaurant, slabs of raw, marbled beef, pork, lamb, and charcuterie are presented behind shiny glass cases like they're 50-year-old bottles of single malt scotch - in other words, this counter-service place takes their meat seriously. The burger comes with two thick patties, the fried chicken is glazed with a caramelized fish sauce, the cheesesteaks are extra cheesy - and everything is big (like, Pacific Ocean big). So get your nap bed ready. Nothing productive ever happens after lunch or dinner here.
