best price/quality ratio sources for an Xmas rib roast?

jdwdeville | Dec 17, 2012 01:59 PM

So I'm looking for a rib roast to cook on Xmas day, ideally of nice enough quality but I need to keep the costs in control because I've also got quite a few lobsters on the menu.

My go-to butchers McCall's and Lindy&Grundy are both closed on Mondays so I don't know what the prices are, but I recall both being very not cheap.

Marconda's has prime roasts at $13.99/lb- never tried their meats so I can't speak to quality.

On the other end of the scale, Ralphs has a special on Rib Roasts later in the week at $4.88/lb and I've got my secret weapon seasoning (Vignalta sea salt from the Veneto w Venetian herbs), but I can't help feeling slightly pessimistic about a supermarket roast...

Are there other butchers in the area that ought to be on my radar? Or is the Ralphs option not so tacky? Beverly Hills is pretty much my western cutoff.
