7. Esposito Meat Market

Esposito Butcher shop

Undoubtedly an old-school butcher shop, Esposito Meat Market on 9th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen has customers coming through the door daily for artisanal Italian sausages, steak, poultry and wild game like venison, squab and wild boar. Esposito’s opened in 1932 and a loyal customer for over ten years said they have ‘the freshest cold cuts in town.’ An added bonus…. they still use the ‘take a number’ style of ordering with a classic ticket dispenser on the counter.
