Launched in the fall of 2014 in the Ballpark neighborhood by an easygoing trio who knew each other from Snooze, Butcherâ??s Bistro sounds like a carnivoreâ??s dream, with local half-cows and hogs butchered weekly in-house and a case by the door so that you can pick up a steak for tomorrow when youâ??re finished with tonightâ??s meal. Surrounded by farm tools, lights that look like tin cans, and signs for farm-fresh eggs and milk, you can relax at the bar with a housemade charcuterie platter, one of the fine offal selections (try the cured beef-heart crostini with tapenade, if itâ??s available) and a cocktail. The rest of the menu has a French-bistro-meets-down-home-cooking feel, with spinach croquettes and cassoulet sharing the page with smoked deviled eggs and meatloaf made with the surprise addition of beef liver and a crunchy layer of parmesan on top. While execution sometimes stumbles, the owners are improving as time goes on; sauce, for example, now comes with the cut du jour, a fun menu item that allows you to choose not your very own lobster from a tank, but sausage, steak or a pork chop from the butcher case.
