Chef Butler specializes in small-batch charcuteries such as sausages, pâtés, and cold cuts. “Classics made modern,” seems to be the motto at the shop.

Many of the charcuterie boards available are pre-designed to help customers curate the best selection of meats and fruits. There is also a customizable option for those who know exactly what they want on their boards. Each one tells a different story at this shop, and all are made fresh to order.

The shop’s Instagram page displays the variations of boards. For example, there is the Country Pâté Picnic; the tasting board that pairs with certain wines, suggested by Chef Butler to maximize the experience; and the French/Spanish picnic spread that features Foie Gras Terrine and Salame Picante Cotto.

Patrons can also pick up fresh sandwiches: the bread is sourced from Montclair Bread Co. with the meats sourced in-house. The Bánh Mì was created with house-made chicken liver pate, cottage ham, and pickled vegetables on a demi-baguette.
