Olivier's Butchery Throws Dogpatch a Bone

French cuts of meat without TSA hassles

“You know what the funniest thing about Europe is? It's the little differences. I mean, they got the same shit over there that we got here, but it's just … it's just there it's a little different.” — Vincent Vega, Pulp Fiction

Opening next Thursday night in the Dogpatch is Olivier's Butchery, which we believe to be the first shop in San Francisco to offer a variety of meats in French cuts. That means if you want to cook a chateaubriand, you no longer have to settle for a top sirloin steak, or getting ground beef, when you actually need steak à hacher for tartare. That might seem minor, but details are important in the quest for authenticity. If you're not as cultured as we are, you can procure American cuts there as well.
