Ben Runkle and Bryan Butler
The co-owners show off their full service butcher shop, where they also showcase other local artisanal products like freshly baked breads and pastries, patés, and preserves.
Salumi case and counter seating
The open space design allows diners to watch all the action happening in the shop. It has also become something of a casual neighborhood hangout for folks in East Austin.
Mighty Muffuletta ($8)
Sliced mortadella, salami, ham, provolone cheese, and tapenade are sandwiched between house baked rosemary focaccia. This densely packed sandwich is served with fresh potato chips.
Market Salads ($8)
Even though meat is their primary focus, the shop also source their vegetables locally and carefully. Pictured here is their crisp green beans salad with blackberries, basil, and sweet corn. Behind it is a warm salad made from charred tomatoes and eggplant, topped with mint and Parmesan.
Salumi Board ($14)
The salumi board selection changes according to availability. They pair the meats with house made condiments such as preserved lemons, beer mustards, and fennel paté. Pictured here is pancetta, andouille sausage, coffee rubbed lomo, and smoked beef kielbasa.
Pig Head Torchon ($13)
Pig head torchon and pickled green tomatoes are sliced, breaded, and fried, then served with a wasabi aioli and pickled veggies. This is an example of a seasonal item on the weekly-changing dinner menu.
Butcher's Burger ($11)
The burger is cooked to medium-rare and topped with 'Nduja sausage, provolone cheese, and housemade pickles. The toasted bun (by Baked in Austin) is dressed with a spicy-sweet housemade ketchup, and a batch of beef fat fries share the plate.
