After six years of sharing a space with The Brooklyn Kitchen at 100 Frost Street, trailblazing butcher shop The Meat Hook is moving into a place of its own just a few blocks away. Toward the end of February, the shop will close and reopen at 397 Graham Ave.
Co-owner/butcher Brent Young explains: "As the business has grown, so has the need for more production area, refrigeration, and butchers." Young says that the new Graham Avenue iteration of The Meat Hook will offer "the same great service, sourcing, and party vibes" as the original, plus extra groceries, prepared foods, and catering options from Meat Hook Sandwich. After the move, the Brooklyn Kitchen will use the current Meat Hook space to sell fish, as well as a wider selection of produce and cheese.
Young recently opened a new restaurant in the Ace Hotel Pittsburgh called Whitfield.
