Lamb: Coolidge Variety & Deli

After my Arax trip, I finally made it over to Coolidge Deli on Bigelow in Watertown. The counter display was not impressive. Noticing my befuddlement the butcher asked if I wanted lamb. "Sure," I say. He proceeds to pull out lamb carcass sections, the shoulder the ribs the neck. I see a lamb begin to form on the cutting board. I see that all the action is in the meat locker behind the counter. He describes the different pieces, how they get trimmed, cost and origin (Colorado). I walked out with meaty lamb chops which are resting on the counter now as my braising juice separates. It was such a pleasant shopping experience.
