April Bloomfield knows good meat—try any of her superlative burgers for proof. So it's only natural that the acclaimed chef should have her own butcher shop. Today, Bloomfield (the Spotted Pig, the Breslin) is debuting White Gold, a whole-animal butchery–cum–restaurant on the Upper West Side, named after the butcher slang for the covetous fat on a cut of meat.
The marble counters will be manned by butchers and co-owners Erika Nakamura and Jocelyn Guest, who will break down meat for the restaurant's kitchen as well as the other eateries under Bloomfield and partner Ken Friedman's portfolio. In the display cases, find stuff like deli meats, sausages and pâtés, all made in house. From the kitchen, expect sandwiches for breakfast and lunch (an egg sandwich with house bacon, a Harlem-repping chopped cheese sammie), and fittingly meat-heavy fare for dinner: smoked beef cheeks, lamb ribs and rotisserie chicken with green sauce.
Butcher and takeout items are available today, while breakfast, lunch and dinner service in the restaurant begins on November 1. 375 Amsterdam Ave (212-362-8731, whitegoldbutchers.com
