Kahan and Company to Open Publican-Adjacent Butcher Shop

2010_12_kahan.jpg Tribune "Cheap Eater" Kevin Pang reports that Paul Kahan, owner/operator of Blackbird, avec, the Publican, and Big Star, is getting on board with the butcher shop trend. Hot on the heels of the announcement of the Butcher and Larder and the September opening of City Provisions Deli, Kahan told Pang that they signed a lease today on the building across the street from the Publican and are planning to open a whole-animal butcher shop. The shop will have retail space, sell sandwiches and supply the meats for the Publican, and all of your favorites (including their amazing sausages and charcuterie) will be available for sale. We can't wait to get inside when it opens in 6-10 months!
