The Butcher Bar is About to Get Bigger

March 10, 2014 Michael Florio

The Butcher Bar—half butcher shop/half restaurant—is about to expand.

The store, best known for its grass-fed/pastured meats, is going to be taking over the space next door to its 37-08 30th Ave location, according to a restaurant insider. The new space, located at 37-10 30th Avenue, is currently being renovated and is expected to open in about two months.

The Butcher Bar, which opened in December 2011, was founded by Matthew Katakis. The cozy store, with its wooden walls, offers a menu consisting of BBQ ribs, steak, chops, burgers, butcher platters and organic sides.

Katakis already owns two other restaurants on the block.

He owns Pita Pan at 37-15 30th Ave. across the street, as well as the recently-opened Marketa, located at 37-17 30th Avenue.

He co-owns Marketa with Nick Neocleous, who owns a sushi restaurant and bar called Central, at 20-30 Steinway Street.

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
