Best of Boston

2017 Best Butcher

Savenor’s Cambridge

“What’s for dinner?” Ask that question to the butchers at this family-owned nose-to-tail institution, and you’ll get plenty of inspiration. Perhaps they could butterfly a veal breast so it’s stuffing-ready? Or maybe you’d prefer a few prime dry-aged steaks for the grill? From pasture-raised Berkshire pork to organic Giannone chicken, you’ll find only the best cuts—and the best advice—behind the counter.
