The best place for top quality meat for steak tartare, etc.
OMG, if you get a chance when picking up your dinner, try some of the Kobe beef jerky! Can't remember the name, it's from Oregon, and it's so tender it's out of this world. Yum!

Outraged to read the critique from the meat-washing twit cafecritic. Ottomanelli's is hands down the best butcher store in the greater NY area, if not the entire Northeast. Example... we bought a beautiful rolled rib roast for Sunday

Ottomanelli & Sons is hands down the best butcher shop I have ever stepped foot in, (and I work as a butcher for many years). Ottomanelli & Sons has every thing you need and if they dont they will get it for you. All of the meat is high quality and fresh, and the guys behind the counter are characters.

Oh, where to begin?

Meat! This is the place. Noplace else in the Tri-State area has what these butchers are selling. And as for the idiot who does not like the aroma of dry-aged beef, I recommend you stick to Food Emporium, where the meat generally smells like a supermarket. Ummm, appetizing, no?

And it has the exotic stuff, too. Want to serve veal sweetbreads to a dinner party? O's has it. Want to try searing a grade B foie gras? (Bloodier and meatier than the hyperfat Grade A) They've got that, too, for about half the price of a Grade A. And even a grade A here is half the price you'll pay at the Other Place on Prince Street.

And the no-nonsense attitude here reminds me of the waiters at Peter Luger. These guys know what they are doing and don't you forget it!!

I just got off the phone with a friend who highly recommended Ottomanelli's and I looked them up. I was surprised to read the nasty review by cafecritic. But then, why should I listen to someone who washes their meat!!!! I am from Europe, and that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever read!!! I'll go and give Ottomanelli a try very soon... Just because I trust my friend, I'll give the "recommended" 4-stars for now.

I have been going to Ottomanelli's for over 40 years. I find cafecritic's review biased and spiteful. He definitely has some sort of ax to grind and Ottomanelli's is the target. Believe me, they are knowledgeable and friendly butchers. They know their stuff and are more than willing to help any way they can. They haven't been in business all these years being nasty or selling inferior products!

I asked a few questions before purchasing some aged beef steaks at one time when I tryed this butcher and one person in particular behind the counter became quite nasty and did not want to answer any questions. As far as the beef goes I have had many dry aged prime steaks from locations across the nation, but the foul smell from this meat indicated something wrong with the aging process, I never returned again. I never found aged beef with a foul odor from any other qualified butcher anywhere. I rinsed the meat before preparing and that is advisable with any meat or fish before preparing. I HAVE MANY REVIEWS ON CITYSEARCH FROM LOCATIONS ALL OVER THE USA AND 99% ARE POSITIVE. I TELL MY EXPERIENCE JUST LIKE IT IS, I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST ANY ESTABLISHMENT I AM JUST DESCRIBING MY EXPERIENCE. I SPENT YEARS AROUND THE GOURMET FOOD INDUSTRY AND ONLY SEEK OUT THE BEST QUALITY...... THE BEST MEAT MARKETS ARE ON ARTHUR AVE IN THE BRONX. AND CHEF'S AND ANYONE THAT KNOWS FOOD WILL TELL YOU THE SAME PEOPLE COME FROM ALL OVER THE TRI-STAE AREA TO SHOP THERE THAT IS A KNOWN FACT.

Want a butcher who really knows what he's talking about and is more than happy to offer advice? Want the best cuts of meat in the city, plus game in season and other exotic specialties? Want a real New York experience at a fair price? Yes? Then Ottomanelli's is your meat market. Forget those overpriced yuppie marts, where the kid behind the meat counter got moved over from produce that morning and the meat is selected for its photogenic qualities. Ottomanelli's is the real deal.
