Style Weekly Dines at Metzger Bar and Butchery

Have you been yet?

If I go by the words of my friends I’m punishing my palate by not getting it to Metzger Bar and Butchery (801 N 23rd Street). If this Style Weekly review is to be believed my friends are right.

Options beyond the classics show just how talented the kitchen is. The large-plate chicken ($17), beer-brined and juicy, is nicely charred and bursting with flavor. On another visit I try the daily special, maultasche ($18), ravioli stuffed with blue crab, topped with corn cut from the cob, green beans and lima beans in a light cream sauce. The flavors balance beautifully, and my only disappointment is the small portion.
