Hailing from Napa originally, The Fatted Calf may well be the best place in the city for all meat and cheese needs. Everything is tantalizingly fresh, with a strong focus on local and organic products.
Wednesday evenings are especially fantastic, from 17:30 to 19:00 is the butcher’s happy hour – a free sampling of local wines and cuts of meat chosen by the head butcher. Salami and red wine are always a good pairing, they are even better when free. Good luck not walking out with some though!
The Fatted Calf also does a number of speciality sandwiches and salads daily, made on the spot to take out for lunch. The sandwiches vary based on what ingredients are available but they are consistently delicious. I like the pulled pork sandwich and Porchetta sandwich the most, and their little gem and kale salads are a nice fresh compliment to the meaty goodness.
