B&B Butchers & Restaurant is a locally owned and operated traditional butcher shop and upscale steakhouse in Houston. Located on the emerging East End of Washington Ave in the historic Dittman Bakery, the dual concept specializes in high quality meats and elevated customer service. The most unique trait is the owner is originally from the East Coast, specifically New York, and has successfully brought east coast fine dining to the south.
Providing a complete butcher and delicatessen experience featuring some of the finest and most thoughtfully sourced products within Texas and beyond, the Butcher Shop specializes in custom hand cuts, house-made and house-cured meats and sausages, as well as a charcuterie, importing the finest Italian prosciuttos to unique gems like the ‘Gourmet Tennshootoe’ from The Hammery in Tennessee. Standout cuts include Texas-bred Wagyu beef from the Gearhart Ranch in West Texas, Japanese Kobe straight from Japan and in-house dry-aged USDA prime beef – all hand cut daily in the Butcher Shop. In the restaurant, patrons can enjoy an elegant dining experience serving a classic steakhouse menu with a new, unique twist, as well as contemporary favorites paired with rotating, seasonal sides. Menu highlights include Wagyu Carpaccio, raw bar selections, fresh seafood, the Carpet Bagger of the Half Shell, Chef Tommy’s Bacon and steakhouse classics such as Châteaubriand for two. The lunch menu, which is entirely different from the dinner menu, includes unique hamburgers, salads and sandwiches along with noteworthy dishes like a bone-in chopped steak.
Housed in the 1924 building just minutes from downtown, the urban setting boasts exposed brick, period lighting and vintage accessories combined with classic, white tablecloths. The bar areas on both floors offer a full selection of local and global spirits, beer, cocktails on tap, and an evolving, handpicked wine list. Three unique private dining options include: the spacious rooftop patio with views of downtown Houston, the upstairs dining room and the Butcher Shop.
After personally checking it out myself, it is definitely a must go to if you live in Houston. Another plus- the butcher shop has bagels, and yes they are made just like they are from New York.
