Reopening Wednesday, September 16 after a short revamp is The Wise Ox Butcher & Eatery, which replaces The Heart & Trotter on El Cajon Boulevard. Now under the Trust Restaurant Group umbrella, the shop will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
Stocking a full range of meats, from prime beef to heritage pork and free range chicken, the butchery will also feature marinated meat and fresh sausages. A monthly butcher box option, available at a lower membership rate, will include over 10 pounds of meat from a rotating selection of cuts.
Gourmet market goods and prepared food will also be available, from bottles of wine and beer to fresh pasta and sauce, chicken salad, housemade bread and butter pickles, and the popular chicken liver mousse off the Trust menu. To-go sandwiches include honey-smoked turkey or roast beef sandwiches, a double cheeseburger, and The Ox Dog, a housemade beef hot dog.
