If you haven’t been to BtB yet, prepare yourself. You are in for some beautiful grassfed meats and housemade sausages. Each location caters to the neighborhood it serves, and if you ask for it (you want goat? you want goose?) they’ll find out how to get it for you. Stores are staffed by a head butcher with a culinary background, and, in addition to meats, stock local sundries like scavenger chicken eggs, Boat Street Pickles, and milk and cream from Golden Glen creamery.
We were talking with another business owner last week about how great it would be if we a small collection that included a neighborhood butcher, a bakery, a green grocer. With BtB opening, we just need to work on the latter two options.
