The Block is part-butcher shop, part-restaurant, with meats on display when you walk through the door. Though it pegs itself as an ode to neighborhood butcher shops of the mid-20th century, The Block’s atmosphere trends contemporary. Great cocktails and craft beers make happy hour worth stopping by for. Meanwhile the menu is long on meat-heavy fare, expertly hand-trimmed and prepared in-house. Try the flash-fried Brussel sprouts – served with house-smoked bacon – for your first course, and go with the butcher’s choice steak for dinner (or, if you’re feeling more casual, the Block burger).
