Beyond the Butcher Block
Proper Meats + Provisions is a local butcher shop and a 10-seat eatery located in downtown Flagstaff. The shop has been a life-long dream of the admired restaurateurs behind Brix and Criollo Latin Kitchen (Flagstaff) and Proper (Tucson). Proper Meats is the first exclusively local butcher shop that displays Arizona’s finest raised meats, poultry, and cured meats. They offer a number of specialty cuts of meats and carefully curated products, as well as stocking their shelves with common cuts. All of the meats they carry are humanely and sustainably raised, and can be traced directly back to the local source. Proper Meats offers a number of other local ingredients on their shelves. They have local cheeses, small plates, fresh baked breads, house-made soups, hand-crafted sandwiches available, as well as a menu of local craft beers and wines.
Their main focus at Proper Meats is not only to supply Flagstaff with the finest meats raised right here in Arizona, but go beyond the butcher block to educate the community about the benefits of sustainable farming and butchery.
If you have a chance to stop in for lunch or an early dinner, Proper Meats has a diversified menu of delicious sandwiches, from their Warm Aleppo Pepper Pastrami (grilled onions, roasted green chilies, cactus cream cheese, and agave on rustic white) to their Bahn Mi (pork shoulder confit, pickled zucchini & carrot, cilantro, chili aioli). All of their sandwiches are filled with the freshest, local ingredients that you can taste. Proper Meats + Provisions is located in downtown Flagstaff, a couple of blocks south of the train tracks. They are open Tuesday through Sunday, from 10am to 7pm.
