Owned by the same folks who own the Western Beef chain, the Big Apple Meat Market in the Garment District is the type of quirky small business that seems to be rapidly disappearing. The New York Times, in fact, did a feature on the store before it moved to its present location. I would definitely check out that article for a really interesting look into this business!
Other note - we're doubling up today, so we'll be seeing another store today at noon here on The Independent Edition!
