The Butchers of Washington

When Red Apron Butchery announced in February that it would open a couple of local butcher shops this fall, including one in the District, I was thrilled. All things considered, I prefer my meat locally sourced and ethically raised—and to buy it from someone who can give me tips about the best cut for my […]

Charcuterification: Gourmet Meat Meets Shifting Demographics at Petworth’s Three Little Pigs

It’s 10 minutes until the posted 7 p.m. closing time, but business shows no sign of stopping on Friday night at Three Little Pigs, D.C.’s newest gourmet meat market.

Three Little Pigs Lets You In: A Peek Inside Petworth’s New Charcuterie Palace

Y&H got an exclusive first taste of Three Little Pigs Charcuterie and Salumi, which opens Tuesday in Petworth. Judging by the platter of smoked meats I tried, which cost $11, area carnivores are in for a treat.

The partnership is no more. Y&H contacted Jamie Stachowski yesterday evening who […]

Note: An occasional feature in which Y&H revisits a previously reviewed restaurant. It's Friday night, and the regulars at Thirsty Bernie Sports Bar & Grill have settled onto their usual barstools to toast the end of the week with a few drafts and another ninth-inning meltdown by the Nats.

Meat Your (Charcuterie) Makers

Suddenly, it seems that our region is awash with artisanal charcuterie makers. We've already told you about the stuff at Restaurant Eve, the cured meat plate at PS 7's, and the hand-crafted meats that Jamie Stachowski is peddling practically everywhere, even from the back of his 1988 Trooper. (Oh, by the way, Stachowski finally settled […]

So Where the Hell Can You Find Jamie Stachowski Charcuterie in This Town?

That was the question I put to the celebrated meat man when he called up out of the blue this afternoon, asking me what he should call his forthcoming charcuterie line. (For the record, I told him he should just name the stuff after himself, no matter how difficult "Stachowski" is to pronounce for people […]
