  • El Colmado Butchery
    53 Little W. 12th St., 212-488-0000, Meatpacking District, Manhattan
    A few wholesale meat distributors still pepper the Meatpacking District, although they enjoy an admittedly lower profile than the neighborhood's high-design boutiques and hotels. To open a new-wave butcher shop and Spanish tapas bar here is a sharp move, especially since it's conceived by Seamus Mullen, the much-admired chef behind Tertulia and the original El Colmado in Gotham West Market. The name is meant to evoke a gourmet food shop in Spain, complete with white-tile walls, shelved bottles of wine and olive oil and a row of wooden tables. The meats for sale in the display case are grass fed; you can choose your own pork chop to be cooked on-site. There are also superior cured meats and tapas like grilled bread rubbed with garlic and tomato, smoked deviled eggs and Ibérico ham croquettes.
