At a time when even the most notorious meatheads are paying more attention to greens (April Bloomfield has introduced whole-lamb dinners at the Breslin, but she’s also looking to become a farmer), it’s a little curious that Stephen Starr is hopping on the “meat-centric” bandwagon. Sexy butchers are so 2009! Nevertheless, Eater reports that at last night’s Community Board 2 meeting, he pitched a “low-key,” 223-seat, “‘meat-centric’ neighborhood restaurant with a butcher/retail space towards the entrance.” It'll be at 81 Greenwich Avenue between 11th Street and Seventh Avenue. Here’s the funny part: In agreeing to early closing times, he told the board, “It's becoming London, New York.” You hear that, New Yorkers? Philadelphians are laughing at us!
