The award-winning supplier of ethical and sustainable meats sold at some of BC’s best restaurants has opened up shop.
It’s a traditional working butchery, complete with a glass-walled dry-age room; a European-style deli and take-away counter; plus a 32-seat, eat-in restaurant. There’s a stylish terrazzo-floor, 2,500 square-foot industrial space and come sunny weather, an additional 16-seat patio where you can get a hearty lunch or share a charcuterie board.
Two Rivers Meats selects, prepares and sells only ethically and sustainably raised products from like-minded farms, including Cache Creek Natural Beef, Peace Country lamb, Cheam View Pork, Farm Crest Chickens, Canadian Rangeland bison, Yarrow Meadows Farm duck, and others.
Chef Tony Starratt’s kitchen and family-style eatery serves what the Two Rivers brand does so well. Bonus? Guests can dine in and then take home recipe ideas.
Try the 60-day dry-aged burger or the rotisserie chicken with hand-cut fried cooked in beef tallow. Fortify with their house-made chicken or beef bone broth. In keeping with the local vibe, a rotating selection of B.C. beer and wine will be available on tap too.
