The new addition on Kercheval in West Village was most intriguing to the carnivore in me. This concept of part butcher shop – part restaurant is right up my alley. Yet they are also vegetarian friendly (as long as you are not offended by the hanging/aging carcasses). The menu is small and done very well. They offer a rotating lamb, pork and beef daily – all locally and sustainably raised. The waiter had even visited the pigs on the farm where my pork was raised.
My meal was beautiful, creative and tasty. Also – this is a full service butcher shop and they offer some lovely and unique things. Even more interesting – they have butchery workshops! I am particularly interested in the knife skills, dry aging and sausage making – but for a more serious butcher – there are heavier classes such as “whole hog breakdown” or “beef primal butchery”.
The menu changes often – I was trying to describe the menu to a friend and when I looked it up, already it was very different. I’m excited to return. The also have an amazing brunch menu. www.marrowdetroit.com
