Though it may seem that hipster-laden Williamsburg is filled with granola-eating-thrift-store-shopping-vegetarians, we doubt that the newly opened Marlow & Daughters will have any trouble surviving the ‘hood. M&D is the youngest sister of burg favorites Diner (killer brunch), Marlow & Sons (oysters, yumm!) and Bonita (voted best Mexican chow in Brooklyn).
The newly opened space under the Williamsburg Bridge is a grass-fed, locally sourced butcher shop, offering up every cut of meat imaginable (beef, pork and fowl), local aristanal cheeses, cured meats, seasonal organic produce and house-made country pates.
Head butcher Tom Mylan, will be butchering only happy, local, grass fed animals in the store, in sight of the customer. This approach will enable customers an inside look as to what they’re really buying. Those behind the counter will be able to educate you on how to buy and prepare the meat you’ve chosen. Especially if you’ve decided to pick up a cut you’ve never tried before, as the shop buys and uses the entire animal.
As a fan of all that owners Mark Firth and Andrew Tarlow (and their sons and daughters) have created thus far, I’m excited for the addition to my neighborhood and can’t wait to enjoy many a charcuterie plate, grass-fed burger and house-made sausage that lay in my near future.
