A recent Coolhunting.com video highlights Marlow & Daughters, an old-world style butcher in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. In it, bartender-turned-butcher Tom Mylan explains why the shop works only with whole animals, how he learned to cut meat, and Marlow & Daughters' laudable philosophy:
Free range, organic, there's a lot of buzzwords out there that don't mean anything anymore…Which is why we opened this place. We know every farm that these are from, we've been to most of the farms, so there's accountability all along…We're basically vouching for the meat.
Now that's cool.
