I recently moved downtown (right near McGill/Royal Victoria hospital) and am looking for a good butcher. I am not impressed with the selection at the local grocery stores (not that I was expecting anything, anyway). I am looking for a good butcher who will offer great cuts of meat (lamb, rabbit and so on). I am italian, so I know all the places to go at the Jean Talon Market, the Inter Marche stores in RDP, St. Leo and Laval, villeray area and so on. I am looking for something close to the downtown area and/or , at 'worst' the Plateau.
I know of one butcher shop on Roy (i believe they are Portuguese) and 'Maison de la Roti (i believe it is called, but that is on Papineau and Mont-Royal ... a little far).
I'm guessing there are quite a few at the Atwater Market, but if i'm going to go there, i might as well just go up to Jean Talon.
Any suggestions ... maybe in Westmount? NDG? Something along the 144 Bus Line?
