☞ MEET: The Harlem Shambles Grand Opening

Thursday, December 1st, 6:00PM-9:00PM, The Harlem Shambles Grand Opening, 2141 FDB/8th Avenue and 115th Street.  South Harlem's new artisanal butcher shop will have its grand opening this Thursday and some of the local eateries will be on hand serving up dishes made from the grass fed offerings of the new business.  Interestingly enough, the yet-to-open Vinateria appears to be one of the restaurants that will be at the event so expect another opening on lower FDB in the future.  For more on the Harlem Shambles, check out the recent Zagat article which has a photo of the bespoke butchers at work donning their pork pie hats: LINK.   Read about the forthcoming Vinateria wine bar in our past post: LINK


  1. I have been to the butcher twice now and must say that the staff are pleasant and knowledgeable. It is also not out of reach from a cost point of view. It gets my thumbs up!!!

  2. I also have been two or three times and the owner was very helpful. The meat was excellent and the price was reasonable for the high quality. This place is a really great addition to FDB.

  3. Tim has created a welcomed addition to the neighborhood. Great price point for the quality.

    Good job Shambles!
