To help us determine the best cuts for your buck, we tapped Sophie Grant, a 10-year food industry veteran and Jane of all trades at Fleishers Craft Butcher; Greg Bardwell, the Shop Manager at Fleishers Greenwich; John Ratliff, the owner of Ends Meat in Brooklyn; and Adam Sappington, the Executive Chef and Co-owner of The Country Cat in Portland.
