Located in a very hidden, hip and trendy warehouse in Wynwood Miami, is a restaurant called The Butcher Shop (165 NW 23rd St Miami, FL 33127)… The small alleyway entrance gives one that clandestine supper club feel and then opens up into a considerably large area… The Butcher Shop offers clients cuts of Certified Prime Black Angus, all natural hormone-free organic chicken and a variety of store made smoked sausages. I did not really pay much attention to their wine menu. I felt like having beer (their specialty), and their selection of craft beers on tap and bottles is extensive and unique. A very innovative aspect about the Butcher Shop is, you can buy their meat retail to cook at home or an in-house chef will cook it to perfection for you.

First off, I ordered the grilled chicken wings which were sweet, tangy and cooked to perfection. Next off, the roasted beet salad with goat cheese and candied walnuts. It was fresh, light and of a very civilized portion size. To finish off my meal, I got the Bacon Gorgonzola burger with caramelized onions. The secret to their burgers and to any burger is to knead the toppings into the ground beef. So in this case the bacon and cheese were in the meat. It was so amazing! Best burger I have had in a while and their skin-on french fries were crunchy and very savory. My server was a young, friendly college student who was right on key with service. He even brought out small tasting samples of beer, was very knowledgeable on beer characteristics, and made it a point that I like my beer before ordering a full stein. I especially liked the Leffe Blond and the Fat Tire ale which paired great with my meal.

The ambiance is very hip and young which I really enjoyed and having a live Dj during my meal was also a big plus and a very innovative idea. The music and volume were not bothersome at all… Graffiti walls also give that cool feel of the restaurant.The Butcher shop seems to be more of a guys place because of the meat and beer concept but I also noticed some families out, girls together at girls night and college students. All-in-all, I would highly recommend The Butcher Shop MIA based on ambiance, service, food quality and freshness. Prices were very reasonable compared to a restaurant on South Beach. Open for lunch and dinner, give them a try and buon appetito!
