The Butcher, the Baker, the Candlestick maker

Ok, so the baker and candlestick maker failed to RSVP for lunch but boy did the butcher show up and show out. Butcher, around the corner from Couchon and conveniently owned by the same folks, is a delicious deli with a penchant for delectable treats of the meat variety.
This sleek deli offers both classic and unique sandwichs among other items to cure hunger pains. They also have breakfast options…I hear a brunch visit soon.
Jumping off the menu and screaming my name was the bbq pulled pork sandwich. Never one to turn her nose up at an opportunity to try a bbq pulled pork sandwich, I had no choice by to appease the bbq gods and give it a shot.
Unlike most bbq pulled pork, Butcher’s lacked a smothering of sauce. I’m not gonna lie. I was a little skeptical. What’s bbq without your own roll of paper towels and a napkin bib tucked under your chin? Exactly. Not bbq. But much to my surprise, the Butcher proved me wrong. The sauce was just enough to enhance the meat’s flavor and remind you that you did in fact order a sandwich with meat and not a sauce sandwich.
The best part was I didn’t have to inspect my pork for chunks of fat disguised as meat doused in sauce. When you find a good butcher, he knows not to do those things. That’s just bad form. Butcher is definitely on my list of favs for a Saturday lunch. On my next visit, I want make use of the deli’s selection of meat for my at home meal creations.
