    Does the owner have a suicide wish? There’s no shortage of butchers in Sunnyside, Irish or not.

    This block of Queens Blvd is emerging as Sunyside’s own Restaurant Row: Yum Yum, El Shater, Foxy’s Diner, Molly Bloom, this new Irish Place, and Subway. Something for almost every taste including nouveau cuisine offered at Subway which features grass feed beef dishes served on grain bread.

    I’m delighted to hear about this. For anyone who’s interested Irish cooking is a much more extensive and tempting prospect than the Butcher Block has ever let on.

    I love the BB but they play safe with the dinner menus and that means there’s a world of choice ahead that hasn’t remotely been tapped. A bit of local competition will improve both businesses I imagine.

    I’m so happy this is not another trash (i.e. 99 cent store) or nail salon. And ditto on the organic/grass fed meats. I feel slightly ill every time I buy some of the supermarket packaged meats.

    Good luck Patrick……..may I suggest you consider a “kosher” line-up of products. Ireland has always been a friend to the Jewish people…Mazel Tov!

    Why must it be “hipsters” who want grass-fed and organic beef? I would love that option and I am not a hipster. Lots of people go to Whole Foods to get that kind of beef and it would be smart for someone to offer it here in Sunnyside.

    I hope that this new butcher shop won’t have expired meat on it’s shelves …

    … especially after a customer points it out to various members of the staff, including management and returns an opened package just to see that same opened package sitting on the shelf for the next 2 days.
