The Village Voice, which in our opinion is reading more like the Onion than the Voice of yore, covers Atlantic Avenue’s newest business Della Pietra’s Gourmet Meats. After a few snarky comments about the store’s website and its claim that the store is located in Cobble Hill (it’s really Brooklyn Heights but we’ve “advised” the store to leave it that way to see if it starts a trend..sure oh sure), the piece is complimentary.
Village Voice: One thing the store is not is cheap: Some of the steaks here sell for $40 a pound, so the clientele Della Pietra’s seeks are eaters who will settle for nothing less than the finest, cost be damned. Those looking to feed the masses with cheap eats will probably defer to Key Foods, Trader Joe’s or one of the halal butchers along the bustling section of Atlantic Avenue where the store makes it home.
