Fleisher's Meats Coming to 192 Fifth Avenue

Looks like Park Slope is about to get a second butcher shop.

In a press release, Fleisher's (founded by Wolf Fleisher in 1901 in Kensington) announced that in early Fall they'll be opening up a second branch of their organic and grass fed meat market in the space most recently occupied by Hog Mountain, between Union and Sackett. Their other outpost is upstate in Kingston.

Here's what owner Jessica Applestone told Brooklyn Based:
"The offerings will be no different from what we offer in Kingston but we have more prepared frozen entrees. We already offer pot pies, shepherd’s pie but there will be more options like that. We will cut there (and make sausages) but we will continue to process in Kingston so we will doing major cutting etc. upstate. There will be a delivery van going back and forth every day so that if people have special orders and we don’t have it in, they can order it for the next day from Kingston. Oh, and of course we will have rotisserie chicken! We will be open six days a week, closed on Sundays with similar hours to our Kingston location. The shop will have a really old-fashioned, old-school butcher feel with a kid’s corner and stroller parking (it is Park Slope after all!) so that parents can shop easily. (Do we know our audience or what?) We are really looking forward to joining the neighborhood it seems like a perfect fit for us."
The full release can be found here. This is great news, and while longtime fixture M&S Prime Meats is just up the avenue, I don't think two butcher shops in one neighborhood is a bad thing.

Yay! Hope they are good! I used to love M&S, but, something about them changed when they moved to their new location, the quality of their meat went way down (IMO at least), and their service dropped also.

I love this news.

Also of note, the for rent signs have all been taken down on the former Slope Sports place on 7th Avenue at Berkeley/Lincoln.

Maybe a little investigation is in order there?

M&S may have had some problems settling in, but lately they've been treating me right (both quality and service.)

I'm a big fan of M&S and think that they have good quality stuff, but I agree that his is a GREAT addition to the neighborhood.

This is almost too good to be true. Fleisher's is amazing. Thanks for the scoop!

This is huge. Park Slope will now have the best butcher in NYC.

best butcher for the best neighborhood.

I think you all may mean A&S, but Fleisher's is ridiculously fabulous. Amazing people! Amazing meat! You can't beat their meat - they're sassy too! Some of the best (if not the) in the country! Big score for BK.

Question: Will they be offering master butchering classes in the County of Kings?

Oh right, M&S. Forgot about them.

They aren't still kosher, are they?
