'Gwen Butcher' is a new craft meat shop in Hollywood that is dedicated to bringing the quality and sustainability permeating much of the food industry to the butcher industry. The shop was started by Curtis Stone, the Australian celebrity chef and restaurateur behind Maude in Beverly Hills.
Gwen Butcher is committed to both quality and sustainability. In facts, as far as meat is concerned, those two factors often go hand in hand. The shop works directly with ranchers and purveyors to offer hormone-free, ethically raised, whole animals that come from local, pasture-based farms.
Products from Gwen Butcher include charcuterie, sausages, and cook-ready foods that are prepared daily in the shop. The butcher shop also includes a dining room and patio with a small prix fixe menu and sandwiches and coffee served every weekday.
