Hayes Valley locals love their food to be fresh from local farms. Many eateries pride themselves in providing stellar fare crafted from regionally grown produce and meats. The one thing missing from Hayes Valley is a butcher shop that gives the residents the opportunity to use local meats at home. Well… that is in the past!
The grand opening of The Fatted Calf will provide fresh, locally raise meat and dairy products to Hayes Valley residents. Much like the Napa Valley original, owner and designer Taylor Boelticher claims that the 1350 square foot shop will an array of meats in an urban industrialized style (think exposed beams and concrete floors).
Patrons will be in awe at the sleek, steel counter filled with a wide variety of sausages, pates, and delicate cuts of meat. While meat is the star of the show, it is not alone – other to-die-for products such as Cowgirl and Andante cheeses, breads, and Rancho Gordo beans will be offered, too.
Boelticher doesn’t want The Fatted Calf to be just another butcher shop, but a platform where residents can become connected with the local farmers and ranchers in the region. The shop opens its walk in freezer doors to buyers so they can visualize where the meat really originates from. The motto meet your meat come full circle here and nobody is afraid to share it.
Not looking for raw meat? No problem! The Fatted Calf functions as a deli, also. Don’t feel guilty if this ends up being the local lunch pit stop because Boelticher offers evolved fare that spikes the taste buds. Stop by to have a pork belly sandwich or a plump bison hot dog on Della Fattoria bread. Mmmm.
