The Meat Hook is a lot of things all at once. We are a butcher shop selling the best meat available anywhere in the northeast and we’re a restaurant cooking the best burgers (we think) in NYC. We’re the only fully transparent sausage you can buy in a grocery store and we’re a Youtube show about meat culture and techniques.

But, most importantly, we are home to a group of 30+ like-minded people who want to make a tangible difference in the world through agriculture. We are dedicated to our mission of promoting and working with farms that work regeneratively and sustainably. Our community spans from the farmers, to our staff, to the communities we serve.
