Great cooking steak, rare meats, best Jerky I've ever had! 6/18/2011

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! more

Most wonderful people in the world 11/11/2010

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 lunch, and they lovingly hand-wrapped it in beautiful snowy white fat and close-tied it for us so it would cook beautifully. And boy, did it ever! Every steak, rack of ribs, quails egg, rabbit, duck, and veal chop I've bought here has been nothing short of spectacular. If you don't have a clue how to cook it, just ask any of the lovely young men behind the counter for suggestions and they will give you a flawless step by step for perfect results. Thanksgiving turkeys are foolproof, and everything down to plain old boneless skinless chicken breasts are perfect. Classic, old school, exceptional and a remaining gem on this tourist-plagued street. If I ever meet you cafecritic, I'll grab you by your ear and waltz you down there to apologize to these wonderful people! more

Dear Ottomanelli knocker 10/6/2008

You must be an idiot and an A-hole.\r The Ottomanelli Brothers are the best in town\r Product, Service, and Attitude. Pros: Best In Town more

Great products and service 8/29/2008

Thank you very much! The veal cheeks was incredible so as the service, fast and professional. \r Thanks again. more

Meat!!! Nothing further need be said. 7/21/2008

Oh, where to begin?\r \r 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?\r \r 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.\r \r 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!! Pros: Easy to get to. Cons: You have to eat your veggies sometime. more

Washing beef? 5/8/2008

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. more

Best Butcher in New York 4/3/2008

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! more

Arthur Ave The Bronx Has The Best Meat Markets. 1/14/2008

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. Cons: Nasty Attitude more

The real deal 2/25/2003

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. Cons: closed sundays more
