Best Butchers

American Meat Co.

Make mine meat! If you're accustomed to getting your meat from the supermarket, sealed on a pastel Styrofoam platter with a damp little diaper under it, the American Meat Co. will be a revelation. Real old-school butchers cutting real fresh meat! Fresh chickens on ice! Yummy weenies by the pound for single hot dog enthusiasts who can't eat eight hot dogs in a week! The freezer cases have hard-to-find "variety meats," including sweetbreads and mountain oysters (look for the package marked "Bull Fries").
