Despite my obvious bias, The Butcher Shop is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. There’s just something about the bold red wines, rare meats, and the deep red and black interior that make me feel at home. Andrew and I shared this spectacular charcuterie platter this past afternoon. Nothing is more perfect than a chilly, windy fall day, charcuterie, and lambrusco. I guess that’s why I live in Boston.
Our charcuterie included mortadella, prosciutto di parma, spicy sopressata, rosette de lyon (our favorite), pâté de campagne, lamb rillettes, duck liver en croute. These types of meat may seem intimidating, but the next time you go somewhere with a charcuterie offering, ask for a mixed board. I promise once you try them you won’t shy away from ordering them ever again.
