True butchery is an old world art; a craft our butchers are passionate about bringing to the Monterey Peninsula. All of our meats are cut and hung in-house by our master butchers and our charcuterie is cured at The Meatery by chef Jason Balestrieri.


There is a growing awareness that to know who raises, processes, and butchers your meat is to ensure you are buying the highest quality product. With over two decades of combined experience in the California and local food scene, our relationships with local ranchers allow us offer the most flavorful meats from sustainably and ethically raised animals.


You deserve to know where your food comes from. When you walk into The Meatery, to pick up your fresh cuts of meat or for our fresh, seasonally inspired hot food offerings and made to order sandwiches, you will be able to view our butchers at work. Glass windows provide you with a behind-the-scenes view of our entire process.


At The Meatery, we are committed to sourcing ethically and sustainably raised animals. We offer grass fed, organic, and local meats when available.
