Vegetarian transitioning to omnivore lifestyle -- any advice?

Aucoin | Apr 18, 2011 10:00 AM

Thanks in advance. I've been a vegetarian for 22 years, during most of which I ate milk and eggs, so animal protein is not completely foreign to me.

Any tips from anyone who has made this transition? Has anyone had bad reactions to reintroducing red meat in their diets?

I'm especially interested in establishments which serve organic, humanely-raised animal products, with a special emphasis on the latter. What are some Manhattan-based butchers and restaurants to visit? I know of the Meat Hook in Williamsburg, and there's "Bareburger" in Astoria..any other places? Much appreciated -- I love these boards.
