A local butcher is opening up shop in Loyal Heights, just next to Larsen’s Bakery and the Fresh Fish Co.
Beast and Cleaver will take over the space at 2362 80th St. and become a “whole animal neighborhood butcher shop,” according to owner and “Englishman turned Seattleite” Kevin Smith.
The location, once home to Marcel’s Hair Design, will also have a small kitchen, which will serve dinner on Saturdays for 10 guests.
“These dinners will showcase the best meats and produce available on any given week,” Smith writes on Instagram.
“This project has taken almost four years to come to fruition and the beginning is very near,” Smith writes. He says he expects to be open this fall.
