(Where is the) Best place to buy USDA Prime Beef in the Twin Cities?

Josh P | Apr 2, 200611:48 PM


I am having a friend and his family over for dinner Tuesday. Now, this man is a prince. A man among men. The salt of the earth. The guy you give your house key to, the kind of guy you trust your wife with, a godfather kind of guy. You know. And on top of that, I owe him and his wife several home-cooked meals.

Therefore, I will be cooking him steak, and I wish to purchase the most excellent of beef grades: Prime. Not that Kobe crap, not Choice ... Prime. I live in Minneapolis (in what I call South Midtown but is really Cooper/Longfellow), so listen here suburbanites: I will not cross the beltway to purchase aforementioned viande. In fact, I am pretty damn unlikely to go west of 35W or east of 35E, unless, well ... unless it's just a little hopscotch over and back.

I am not a rich man, but I want to give this family great meat. Whence shall spring my Tuesday night steaks, I ask thee! A butcher you know in Highland Park? A grocer in Roseville? Please, let me know!


PS. It's been a while. I'm compensating.
PPS. Alice, Paz, meet Chris Mitra + SO. You both like dim sum. We should schedule something together! Like a beer tasting!
