Butchery restaurant, as its slogan states, I an authentic meat restaurant.
"Do you offer fish or other foods beside meat?" I innocently asked.
This is a meat restaurant, I was told. We have some fish and the like for non-meat eaters, but we largely cater to the folks who like their meat. And indeed they do.
Butchery is located in downtown Beer Sheva. This restaurant is a cut above other restaurants in the city (no pun intended) and a bit more expensive. But you get what you pay for. This is a total dining experience that begins when you walk through the door and continues with a multitude of choices and opportunities to have your meat the way you like it.
The folks at Butchery believe that dining should not be just about the food, but about the total experience. At Butchery you are a guest. You are greeted at the entrance with a glass of wine. So it begins.
The restaurant is beautifully outfitted with comfortable seating at intimate tables and white tablecloths.
In this warm and inviting atmosphere you will enjoy quality cuts of meat, perfectly prepared to suit your taste. The restaurant is adamant about the quality and presentation of the meats
Select your cut from the pieces displayed in a case. Then leave the rest to the chef.
About The Butchery Menu
Get the juices going with one of the Butchery starters. For the namby-pambies the menu offers some non-meat starters like soup, salads and antipasti. Then there are the meat starters: chopped liver, beef carpacio, rolled eggplant stuffed with meat, or a tapas platter for two.
For your main course you can choose one of the fixed price main courses or you can create a main course from your favorite cut by weight. The listed fixed price mains include salads with strips of meat, a burger in a bun served middle eastern style with a sunny-side up egg in the sandwich. The price of this meal depends on the size of the burger which you will choose by weight. There are also two fixed price mixed grilled platters which are probably good for sharing, especially based on the price. Platters of meat from Ramat HaGolan are yet more expensive, but then the meat has to make its way all the way to Beer Sheva. Keep that in mind.
Purists will prefer to create their main course from the list of meats, which are perfectly grilled by the house chef.
Prices are listed per 100 grams, so that you can satisfy your hunger level. Not to upstage the meat , the only side dish is potatoes.
Can't decide which way to go? Try a combination. The Combination menu offers a tasting menu of skewed meats. A combination menu of 100 grams of 3 grilled meats, Combinations of meats from Ramat Hagolan, again, large enough to share.
