Located at 285 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village, Ottomanelli & Sons is the place to go for artisanal meat. With an international meat and wild game selection ranging from almost A-Z, you can find elk, buffalo, venison and even kangaroo inside its doors. Ottomanelli & Sons has been in business for over 60 years and has been in the Ottomanelli family for the entire time. Displayed proudly on the counter is a picture of original owner, Onofrio Ottomanelli, who died in 2000, passing the business on to his sons. When asked about a specialty item to order, current owner, Frank, suggested the dry aged prime beef. Ottomanelli & Sons is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
