I have always tried to be supportive of the privateer versus big box vendors. Driving along Juanita Dr NE, I came across a purveyor of fine foods.
Butcher Shop Cafe at the corner of Juanita Dr NE and NE Arrowhead Dr.
Speaking with the butcher who was getting the shop ready for the day, he says that they are providing not only fresh meats but prepared foods and a lunch and dinner menu.
Kobe beef, Kubota pork, lamb....poultry including duck, guinea fowl, quail, and squab were all available.
A limited selection of charcuterie including terrines and to my surprise a foie gras
Prepared food looked to be reasonably priced for to go and their sit down meals.
Hope to hear of other Chowhounds experiences. I will update when I have another opportunity to try their foods.
The butcher also said they will be slowly expanding their meat counter and prepared foods selections. For those local to the area, a postcard campaign will be under way and a website as well
