We emailed owner Jessica Applestone, and here’s what she had to say about what to expect at the new shop:
The offerings will be no different from what we offer in Kingston but we have more prepared frozen entrees. We already offer pot pies, shepherd’s pie but there will be more options like that. We will cut there (and make sausages) but we will continue to process in Kingston so we will doing major cutting etc. upstate.
There will be a delivery van going back and forth every day so that if people have special orders and we don’t have it in, they can order it for the next day from Kingston. Oh, and of course we will have rotisserie chicken!
We will be open six days a week, closed on Sundays with similar hours to our Kingston location. The shop will have a really old-fashioned, old-school butcher feel with a kid’s corner and stroller parking (it is Park Slope after all!) so that parents can shop easily. (Do we know our audience or what?)
We are really looking forward to joining the neighborhood it seems like a perfect fit for us.
Welcome to the borough, butchers!
