Probably most well known for their Steak Tartare paired with buttery toast, The Butcher Shop's meat dishes are exceptional. Overall, it is a great place in the neighborhood to stop by for an appetizer, maybe the charcuterie plate , and one of their wines from the extensive drink menu.

Foursquare Tips

  • Best steak tartare in the world.
  • Chef Barbara Lynch's Butcher Shop really is a Butcher shop in addition to being a restaurant. Influences are continental, which is why there is a hot dog a la maison. [Eater 38 Member]
  • When chef Barbara Lynch opened this South End bote, she proved that slabs of fat-streaked, air-cured meats and stylish Bostonians make an excellent, if unlikely, pairing. Check the stellar wine list.
  • Wine Director Cat Silrie handpicks the wines and can suggest the perfect pairing to go with the housemade pats, terrines, sausages, and rilletes.
  • The bartenders here are awesome. Ask for their recommendations on wine and food.
  • The merguez will change your life.
  • Try the Meantime IPA. Brewed in the traditional IPA style, it's hoppy and delicious.
  • get a free coors light with a scotch egg
  • Charcuterie plate is the best in Boston.
  • Great wine list. Very friendly servers. Special duck duet was underwhelming however the proccuito sausage was delicious!
  • Since today (3/14) is Pi Day, this is where you should come to get lard for your pi(e) crusts
  • If you love olives the plate here is excellent
  • Special butter! Mmmmm, eat it.
  • If you don't come try this place out on restaurant week - you are crazy! The food is absolutely fabulous (as all barbara lynch ventures), the gastro pub's wine list is superb! Buy prosciutto here too!
  • The antipasti plate includes their amazing mortadella, prosciutto, soppressata, and more. Avoid the overly seasoned steak tartare.
  • Get the Claus Preisinger Zweigelt. Beautiful bottle and great rich body.
  • Hot dog from heaven!!!!!
  • Excellent meat dishes and cozy atmosphere. Staff was a bit hostile-only bad part about it. Get the ribeye and a charcuterie board!
  • Amazing charcuterie and pate--get enough to share with your table. Dessert was ok, but might consider looking elsewhere in the South End for something sweet.
  • We ordered the burger, which I don't think is listed on the menu. It was delish and the bartender was quite friendly
