Making High End Beef Accessible

When I took over as General Manager at The Great East Butcher Co. in February of 2020; two of my bigger, more ambitious missions involved bringing high end, specialty products to our customer base for a more accessible price. I came from a long background in fine-dining, and I knew exactly how wide of a gap there was between what Read more

Great selection of fresh meat and food. Superb quality and taste of everything that was purchased. It's been a number of years since I've been here and the quality is just as good now as it was in the past. If I traveled into this area more frequently I would definitely stop and purchase something.

Passing by, we found the name enticing enough to try it for lunch. So happy we did! I asked David behind the counter what his favorite sandwich was - brisket sub. Sounded like a good fit for my appetite, so I ordered it whatever way he ate his. As a "Brisket Sub" I think he is under selling it. More of a burnt tip, and possibly Unicorn kisses, this sub whisked me away to the wonderful world of "so good I now need a nap". Tender bits of brisket evenly mixed with delicious "bark", and sauced evenly, all served on a soft sub roll. Delicious. Oh, so very. Well done, David! Many thanks!

With meat prices climbing at grocery stores, I started looking for other options and was very happy to come across this shop. The selection of marinated meats is fantastic and as a native of NYC, it was great to see Boar's Head brand of cold cuts (they're the best, there's no arguing about it). This place is now part of my weekly routine and it should become yours also.

Just had my first experience at the Great East End Butcher Company and was incredibly impressed! Under its new ownership, Tiffany has so many fabulous ideas and delicious recipes in store for all of us! Her welcome smile, along with the friendly staff, mouth-watering smells and sights of food made for a wonderful experience! I walked in to take a look, and walked out with lunch and dinner for the day! Really excited to have this local eatery so close!!

They've been wonderful during the pandemic - we've ordered ahead several times and they have our packages of meat portioned into freezer sizes and vacuum packed. The chicken is really fresh and great quality - organic and great sizes. The beef was fresh and just really good. We appreciate how clean and nice the store is and is the only place we've been able to stock our freezer lately.

Nothing better than a old fashion butcher shop. They make good hearty lunch sandwiches. Great selection of different kinds of meat, you can choose any individual cut or get a whole loin if need be. They have local beer and offer some spices for grilling. The service here is awesome and the people here are nice and helpful if you don't really know what you are looking for.

We had the Pulled Pork sandwich, with coleslaw, pickles, BBQ, a drizzle of mustard on aged Cheddar Brioche and it was PHENOMENAL. Full of flavor! We also had a steak and cheese - good, nothing wrong but just did not compare to the Pulled Pork Sandwich! Neat shop, lots of little specialty items. Fantastic wine and beer selection.

Meat. Meat. Meat. BEER. MEAT. Basically, this store has everything I could ever want: local brews, prepared foods, DOPE meat selection, sauces, marinades, sides. And to top it all off, everyone who works there is so kind, knowledgeable and just good people.
