REVIEW – New York Butcher Shoppe – Greensboro

logoThe New York Butcher Shoppe started out in Mount Pleasant, SC after a longtime New York butcher moved down south wanting to keep his butcher trade going. Based on the fundamentals of great service and great quality food in an inviting environment, the New York Butcher Shoppe began expanding into franchises in South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina.

Currently, the franchise in Greensboro (located near the intersection of N. Elm Street and Pisgah Church Road) is the only North Carolina location but, according the company’s website, a Charlotte location should be opening up soon to provide quality meats to the Queen City.

The New York Butcher Shoppe is a grill master’s dream. The meat is bright red, beautifully marbled (when it should be…) and just asking to be thrown on the grill during a Monday Night Football game with just a little bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt. All the cuts are made by hand and they offer a huge variety with various cuts of beef, pork, chicken, veal and lamb. They also offer a few packages of meats like The Times Square and The Broadway where you can get a variety of cuts for special discounted price.

The New York Butcher Shoppes also offer a variety of prepared dishes including lasagnas, quiches and ravioli using fresh ingredients that can be pulled out of the freezer and be on the dinner table in no time. Outside of the meat and prepared foods, the New York Butcher Shoppes offer an assortment of fine wines, craft brews, exotic cheeses, specialty condiments and other stuff to turn your kitchen into a chef’s dream.

But if you aren’t feeling like firing up the charcoal grill or just need a quick to-go lunch while at work, the New York Butcher Shoppes offer an array of deli sandwiches that are freshly sliced with Boar’s Head meat and filled with top shelf ingredients for about $6.99 including chips. The sandwich menu & prices vary by location.

I tried The Italian (genoa salami, ham and provolone) pictured below and it was delicious. They come with a small bag of Zapp’s chips. It is some premium quality deli meat that puts Jersey Mike’s to shame and they aren’t shy about loading the sandwich up with it either.

Please head on up to the New York Butcher Shoppe (Google Maps link below) and support them so Greensboro foodies like you and me will have a place to go for fine meats so we aren’t limited to the super commercialized butcher’s aisles in the grocery stores.

I am the founding blogger of Eat It, North Carolina. I started Eat It, North Carolina because I am always looking for awesome, local restaurants in different places around North Carolina but have never been able to find one place on the Internet that lists them.

I’m a recent graduate from East Carolina University & currently live in Greensboro. I like all types of food but am a sucker for Chinese and greasy spoons.

    A friend I met in college owns the Charlotte location. Should be up and running in a few weeks, if not sooner.
