Carne Diem: The Meat Board Seizes The Day With Its Grand Opening of Their New Butcher Shop
Not all meat is what it’s cut out to be. At The Meat Board, that's what their motto is all about.
The Meat Board is Fort Worth's newest premium steak and previsions retail store, now open to local residents. Premium steaks available at The Meat Board are sourced from responsible supplies that are able to meet stringent specifications for size, age, and quality grade. All steaks are USDA inspected, have been graded USDA Prime or Premium Choice, and are aged to ensure the most tender, juicy, and flavorful eating experience. Steaks are trimmed to The Meat Board's in-house standards and sold by the desired custom thickness to customers. The idea for this premium meat concept came from the partners in ownership and advisers who host a wealth of education and experience in meats and other fine foods.
Provisions found at The Meat Board included specialty meats, side dishes, fresh breads and desserts, deli cheeses, a variety of spices, jellies & salsa, as well as premium cast iron skillets, meat thermometers, and private-label infused olive-oil. The deli on-site offers sandwiches developed in house, and will be open from 11 AM to 2 PM daily. Give their signature sandwich a try, filled with Grilled Tenderloin Steak, special sauce, blue-cheese, and lettuce on a sweet kolache bun. Other options include: Brisket Hoagie, Doggone Good Hot Dog, NY Strip French Dip, Double Standard Cheeseburger, BLT, Smoked Turkey, Chicken Salad, Grilled Cheese, & a variety of house salads. Custom charcuterie boards will be available for purchase for parties, tailgates, and other special occasions.
Come 'meat' the crew and enjoy "The Board Room", a feature at The Meat Board designed for private meetings & occasions. Used to conduct classes on food preparation and food quality and safety, it will also be available to book for private events such as off-site meetings and dinner parties. Coming soon, The Meat Board will offer e-commerce options that will allow you to share the pleasure of premium steak with friends and family via TheMeatBoard.com. Using the latest and most advanced technology, The Meat Board is able to provide customers with the highest quality and safest product possible, delivered straight to your door.
