A visit to this snug 109-year-old Lincoln Park fixture will disabuse you of the notion that surliness is part and parcel of the butcher’s trade. Owner Otto Demke and his able team positively light up at meat-related customer queries, and take the time to explain their wares without putting on the hard sell. Oh, and the product’s great, too; call in an order for a memorable special-occasion roast, or pop by and browse the freezer cases for exotic finds like lamb bacon and gator sausage.
