Grogan & Brown
Jonathan Brown’s butcher’s shop may well be the most sumptuous meat emporium in the entire country. It comes as no surprise that the store has won awards for its cutting-edge design, for it melds all that is best about cutting-edge modernity with the calm and comfort of a true country store. It’s a masterpiece. But the design is only the first step of Jonathan’s store, for the knowledge, skills and sourcing that every selection in the shop offers reveals the true artisanal skills of a great butchery team. Here is the store with everything you need, and the good news for those who don’t live close to Kilkenny is that G&B now organise 24-hour delivery throughout the country, so you can get those painstakingly prepared cuts no matter where you live. But, if you have any reason to be close to Kilkenny, then Grogan & Brown is a don’t-miss destination, whether you are in search of some obscure cut of meat, or just a fastidiously prepared dinner dish that will make your life simpler, and much, much better.
