HOW IT ALL HAPPENED

minus the boring parts

IT STARTED LIKE THIS…

Three friends – Russell, Bassam and Khalid – were frustrated by the lack of decent halal meat options in New York City. They wanted to create a transparent and radically simple meat store accessible to all New Yorkers.  

HONEST TO THE CORE

From our farms to our butchers to your kitchen, we promise to be honest all along the way. How was the animal raised? When was the animal slaughtered? What’s the best way to cook a flat iron steak?

AND PEOPLE LOVE US…

That’s what Yelp tells us. Or even the food critics at New York Magazine. There’s also the kind words of GOOD Magazine. Did we mention the TED talk? The proof is in the meat, the delicious, ethically-sourced meat.
