Schatzie's Prime Meats
Upper West Side
at West 101st Street
Top quality butcher with prime meats and poultry.
A small shop with superior meats, chicken and other poultry that's been a Manhattan fixture for generations. The butchers have old fashioned skills and a commitment to quality. They also have prepared foods, most notably their "dirty brisket" sandwich.
What to know:
They sell roasted chickens and upon request (and for a price), they will precook some items, including turkeys. If there's something special you want, especially for a holiday, make sure to call ahead.
Prices can be high.
After decades on the Upper East Side, the store moved in 2010 to the Upper West Side, first to Amsterdam Avenue and West 87th Street and then to 101st Street and Broadway in 2015. At the Broadway location they added a burger restaurant alongside the meat counter.
Free delivery with minimum $15 order.
