White Gold Butchers
If you haven't heard of Michelin starred April Bloomfield, you need to get out of the house more as she is the hottest female chef on NY's culinary scene. Her newest venture is ... get this, a butcher shop by day and a 38-seat restaurant by night. The name White Gold is butcher speak for Grade A meat, and this my friends is a Grade A meat shop and restaurant. Providing a great addition to the Upper West Side's (lack of) restaurant choices, it is also responsible for the meat at some of the best restaurants in New York City including Bloomfield's own The Spotted Pig, The Breslin and Superiority Burger. This, however, is not the spot for my vegan or vegetarian Loupers (or the squeamish) as they break down whole animals and crank sausages right in front of you. I personally love Hot Dog Happy Hour, but for my more health minded, trendsetting finders, they do offer their very own bone broth! This spot has great style, rock and roll music, and has/is fresh meat!
