A Taster's Journey is a newsletter on food, wine and travel. After 15 years of studying, tasting, teaching, and selling wine, I created this newsletter to not only share my passion about wine, but of food and travel as well. Each month I hope to share wines that I am drinking, food that is in season, restaurants that I have enjoyed, and places I have traveled. Enjoy!"


L. Simchick – A Sutton Place Gem

March 13th, 2013

It’s our last 2 weeks in Sutton Place before we move uptown. Sutton is a nice quiet section of the city, but it’s certainly not a foodie destination. There were very few foodie highlights, but one exception was the butcher…one of the best in NYC.

Leonard “Lenny” Simchick opened L. Simchick in the early ’90s, and after all these years it continues to excel. This is an old school butcher shop that cuts each piece of meat to order. Lenny recently added prepacked meals for his customers that have little time on their hands; but his selection and quality of the meat has changed little over the last 20 years.

Want a ribeye? They will ask how thick. Want ground lamb? They will grind it, but first ask how much fat.

Grilling season is coming, and if I need a killer steak I’m going to Simchick.
