Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors

If there’s such a thing as a celebrity butcher, Pat LaFrieda, whose name is on more great menus than Benedict and his eggs, is it. From the vaunted Black Label Burger at Minetta Tavern to the Shake Shack patties, the local purveyor rules the country as the undisputed king of meat. Chefs, butchers and customers alike get their red-meat fix with a mouth-watering array of premium prime cuts. At our Dumbo market on the first floor, the Brooklyn native is serving his own signature selections of meat featured in superb cheesesteaks, burgers and “the world’s greatest hot dog.”
