Belcampo Meat Co.'s popular Larkspur location is barely a year old, but owner Anya Fernald is in full expansion mode with newly announced plans to open both a San Francisco and Palo Alto location, plus three in Southern California. This spring will see the opening of locations in downtown Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica and Palo Alto, and a San Francisco location could be on the way as early as May.
The organic meat company has made a name for itself for its farm-to-butcher shop sustainable ethos that sees animals raised on Belcampo's pastures at the base of Mt. Shasta, butchered in a humane, Temple-Grandin-approved processing plant and sent straight to their Larkspur shop. Now, San Francisco residents won't have to go too far to get their meat: the San Francisco butcher shop and restaurant will be located at Polk and Pacific in Russian Hill.
Inside Scoop brings word that the 1800-square-foot space will have room for 44 seats and include lunch and dinner service in addition to the butcher shop. BCV Architects will be handling the space, which will bring home Belcampo's nose-to-tail philosophy with banquettes fashioned from leather from Belcampo cattle hides. Expect charcuterie, burgers, beef tallow fries and more Belcampo classics on the menu (see Larkspur's sample menu here), and look out for an expanded butchery offering with more goat, game birds, and specialty meats on offer.
