Located in a Bernal Heights building that housed various neighborhood markets for most of the 1900’s, Avedano’s is an old-fashioned butcher shop that’s also part takeout restaurant and part marketplace. The shop relies on local farms for its high-quality organic meats, including grass-fed beef, heritage breed pigs, and more unusual options like spicy Thai sausage. In addition to meat, Avedano’s also stocks a wide variety of groceries such as coffees, olive oils, and sweets from nearby confectionaries. Prepared dinner specialties like Bolognese lasagna change daily, while lunchtime options include house-made soups and pressed-to-order panini such as steak with Gruyère.
