Pick Up Your St. Patrick’s Day Corned Beef From These Upper West Side Butcher Shops

Thanks to your beautiful Sagamore kitchen, you can bring the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day home with you with a dinner of corned beef and cabbage! But first, you’re going to have to stop by one of our Upper West Side butcher shops – luckily, we have tons to choose from here in the neighborhood.

Did you know that the tradition of corned beef and cabbage actually started with Irish immigrants in NYC? Ireland doesn’t even eat it! Back in the 1800s, when Irish immigrants were coming over by the boatload to America, most were too poor to afford meat from the American butcher shops. Taking pity on the new immigrants, many Jewish butcher shops living in the same neighborhood as the Irish gave them their cheapest cuts and leftovers of their meat – which often ended up being corned beef! This food tradition is celebrated on an Irish holiday, but it’s more American than Irish!

Schatzie Prime Meats, located at 2665 Broadway, New York which is a five minute drive from your Sagamore apartment, is a stalwart butcher shop known for prime and organic meats, plus sandwiches made with house cuts.

Schatzie believes a big part of taking care of customers is selling you only the “best of the best” and that means USDA prime beef, the highest possible beef grade available. They won’t settle for anything less – for themselves or for their customers, most of whom are true epicureans and know where to find the best of everything when it comes to eating. 

Harlem Shambles, located at 2141 Frederick Douglass Blvd, New York which is eight minutes from your Sagamore apartment, is a stylish shop for high-quality, house-butchered beef, lamb, pork, poultry and more.

Harlem Shambles works with a handful of New York farms to bring customers all-natural meat they can feel good about. They embrace the whole animal philosophy, and their classically trained butchers provide customers with the freshest custom cuts with minimal waste.
