Cooking meat on the barbecue at the Nordelec right next to your condo and enjoying it all in the comfort of your home perfectly describes your way to feed your carnivore envies? Then you must stop by Grinder Butchery on your way home from work to pick up wonderful meat to have at home or order it online and they will deliver it straight to your door. But then, you would miss all the fun from choosing your own pieces and admiring the meat showcased in their window shop. Not only is their meat of high quality but also their service, which could not be more specialised. Their master butcher, Charles Bizeul, was trained at Fleicher’s, a New York butcher shop with a new approach to butchery. “High quality meat worked with refinement” is what you will find at this sister shop of the Grinder Restaurant.
