Best Butcher Shop 

Mr. Brisket

Given the name, it’s logical to assume that all this small Cleveland Heights butcher shop does is make lives easy for Jewish home cooks come Passover. And while they do a brisk business in brisket, there are so many other reasons to visit this legendary spot. For starters, it’s about the only game in town when it comes to a retail selection of USDA Prime beef, meaning this should be stop No. 1 when shopping for the best ribeye steaks for the grill, tenderloins for the dinner party, or flank steaks for fajita night. Heritage breed pork chops live here, as do spare ribs and pork butts for the smoker. Chicken, lamb and veal? Sure, but have you tried the corned beef and pastrami, available by the sandwich or the pound? If Mr. B doesn’t have it, he’ll order it, from the whole pig down to the shanks.
