European-style artisan butcher shop serves up fresh, locally sourced, free range meats for mouth-watering holidays
by Doria Maselli
One of the only European-style full-service artisan butcher shops in the area, Delmonico’s sells in-house dry-aged beef, local pork, air-chilled chicken, lamb, sausages and game (like pheasant, quail, rabbit and venison.) Their meats are 100% fresh, raised free range on small, self-sustaining farms and sourced locally. “One of the great things about supporting Delmonico’s is that 80-85% of our meats are sourced from a 40 mile radius,” says Brian McDonald, owner of Delmonico’s.
In addition to meats, Delmonico’s sells fine cheeses, charcuterie, local Wild Yeast breads, delicatessen, ready-to-go items including fine pastas, Sicilian olive oil, dried wild mushrooms, honeys, spice rubs and sauces and sundries to inspire and perfectly complement your meal. “Our business plan builds working relationships between our chef-butchers and Pacific Northwest farmers and suppliers. We support sustainable local agriculture and bring savings to the local consumer at the same time. It’s a win-win!” says McDonald.
Delmonico’s is also happy to share their collective cooking and butchery knowledge. Call them or stop in to discuss menu planning. They’ll even help you figure out how to recreate that recipe your granddad used to make! They have everything you need for a delicious holiday meal with all the fixings.
