The butchers are ready at Belcampo. Really, they’re happy to see you. Photo from Facebook.
Newly open in Russian Hill is the SF location of the ~BELCAMPO MEAT COMPANY~ butcher shop and soon-to-open restaurant. (They also have locations in Marin, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbara.) What’s unique about Belcampo is their organic meats are humanely raised (and free range) on their farm in Mount Shasta; they also have their own state-of-the-art slaughterhouse facility, one of the few USDA-certified, multispecies meat-processing facilities to open in California in the past two decades. The butcher shop will carry a variety of pastured, free-range, and grass-fed meat, and includes heritage-breed hogs, cattle, poultry, and rabbits. At their old-fashioned butcher counter, you can find both traditional and untraditional cuts. The butcher shop is open daily 9am-8pm.
As for the restaurant, we’ll have more details in next week’s column! It should be opening at the end of this week and will be open for dinner nightly 5:30pm-10pm. 1998 Polk St. at Pacific.
