The Modern Butcher
With a devotion to locally sourced, pasture-raised meat, The Modern Butcher has gained a dedicated following since opening earlier this year. This whole-animal butchery is your source for nose-to-tail meaty goodness of all kinds, from aged ribeye steaks to duck fat to homemade chicken bone broth. Also check out their homemade sausages in creative (and yummy!) flavors like Korean spicy pork and maple bacon donut, as well as fresh pastas, a sandwich of the day, gorgeous charcuterie platters, and more.

And if a pig roast is on your summer party schedule, head to Tendercrop, too; it’s offering pigs for pickup at all three of its locations.
