It’s polished, it’s chic, it’s packed with designer-clad South Enders swirling wine goblets and nibbling on pâté, it’s…a butcher’s shop? Yes, indeed—as well as a cosy soapstone-and-slate wine bar. Owner Barbara Lynch stocks the display cases with every delicacy, from pigs’ heads and whole hams to quails’ eggs and truffle butter, and fills the short menu with equally delicious, simple fare. Own-made charcuterie and antipasti can be washed down with a selection of mostly European boutique reds. After a bite or two, regulars often cross the street to B&G Oysters, also owned by Lynch, to complete their surf-and-turf crawl.
