Macelleria Restaurant Review

: The Meatpacking District is home to a stylish restaurant that pays homage to, well, meat. Macelleria, which means butcher shop in Italian, is located in a refurbished meat market, much of which has been left intact. The front is attractively tiled and has been beautified by an ornate wrought iron door, and vintage bar, but the back has retained its meat market feel with a butcher case filled with dinner choices and meat hooks along the wall. The menu is mostly Italian, and has a notably good selection of salumi and rich pasta dishes such as the pappardelle with wild boar ragù. Entrées have something of a Northern Italian-Austrian accent appropriate to the chef's upbringing in Austria, near the Italian border. We recommend the chicken scarpariello with fennel sausage and mushroom, or splurge on the porterhouse for two, the most expensive item on the menu.
