Following in the steps of purveyors from Duane Reade to Stumptown, Prime Meats is now selling growlers. The restaurant writes in with the news that you can now purchase its PM Pilsner at Prime Meats Delicat-Essen and Provisions, right alongside the Faicco’s sausage and homemade malolactic fermented pickles.
And on the more chewable end of the spectrum, Café Pedlar is now offering an array of salads, sandwiches, and packaged goods to-go. In addition to BLT, Sicilian tuna, turkey, pastrami, and roast beef sandwiches, you can find restaurant staples like meatballs, gnocchi, cavatelli, and Frankies’ cipollini and onion Caesar dressing. Perfect, in other words, for a picnic lunch — though some would argue a growler is all the splendor in the grass that one could ask for.
