Today marks the official opening of Benjamin Berg's anticipated dual-concept butcher and upscale steakhouse, B&B Butchers and Restaurant. The historic Dittman Bakery (circa 1924) now houses a traditional butcher shop and delicatessen featuring USDA Prime beef and superior meats, all dry-aged in-house. Adjacent to it, on the East End of Washington Avenue, sits an upscale steakhouse.
"We took our time and waited to find the perfect venue and location," said Berg. "The urban feel of the space combined with the classic, white tablecloths creates an elegant, sophisticated interior."
As you can see, the historic beauty of the nearly 100-year-old, two-story brick structure now houses an elevated design that's part old New York steakhouse, part modernist hangout: all dark wood, plush chairs, exposed brick and period lighting. Patrons can peek into the dry-aging room from a circular window on the first floor. Original cattle culture posters and an exterior butchery diagram mural finish off the meat-heavy vibe. Meanwhile, an upstairs white table cloth dining area — complete with an expansive downtown view — and a huge rooftop patio create backdrops for multiple eating and drinking scenarios.
