THE BUTCHER SHOP BEER GARDEN & GRILL
THE FOOD BRO
THE BUTCHER SHOP
There are a handful of dishes considered vegetarian on The Butcher Shop Beer Garden and Grill’s menu, but what plantivore walks into a place called The Butcher Shop, with sausages and meat hooks hanging around like a crime scene, and expects green-menu miracles?
Here under the high industrial rafters and big, beautiful floor plan there are dozens of high-top tables and a massive meat case for you to take home tomorrow night’s dinner. The long, lively bar across the north wall is a favorite game-day destination.
But the beer garden out back under the strings of lights is where to plant it for the night. Bring your dog if you want, and get ready to cry into some really great beers if your team loses.
But this place is all about the meats. Anybody can do regular ole chicken wings, but here they mix things up: try the Mongolian duck wings with an herbal root beer glaze, sesame seeds and chives.
Brussel sprouts, brats, beers and ball games. Winning wieners, and French-Canadian poutine, with gravy, as an app. All the sausages are the absolute wursts, ha-ha, and made in-house by the Eastern European owners who know their meats. Polish kielbasa is our favorite – with hints of the marjoram and a nice garlicky touch. Slathered with the house made mustard, add kraut and caramelized onions and you have something worth writing home about. In Polish.
The signature burger here is made from three different cuts: brisket, short rib and chuck eye round – another winning combo. Juicy and really tasty, it’s the pinnacle patty. Second choice: the Bacon and Gorgonzola Burger, with those mixed into the ground meat.
Unless you’re on a first date, you can go all Flintstone-caveman and get the Tomahawk steak, ordered by ounces – average weight about 3 to 4 pounds. Their own steak sauce is tangy and tasty. Other cuts, though not as rich and flavorful, are also not as spendy. Marinated flank, or the Butcher’s Cut will do and get you out under $20 for a steak. Add a spinach gratin and you’re happy til breakfast.
Through Oct. 21, Oktoberfest specials are on tap. And through December, football is on TV.
