Got a hankering for some old-fashioned wieners—the kind Grandpa Bob used to buy? Here’s a place that’ll make the old guy proud. Village Meats, a charming throwback to the 1950s, offers some seriously fine smoked and cured meats—like said old-fashioned wieners and spicy turkey sticks (there are beef ones, too, if you must)—in addition to a sprawling case filled with fresh cuts of short ribs, fresh-from-the-farm chicken, marbley ribeyes and boneless, butterflied pork chops. There are a dozen or so other choices, so your biggest problem lies in deciding which ones to try. The butchers are very helpful and don’t make the selection process any easier, because everything is great (really, it is)! So, if you’re anything like us, you’ll end up buying one of everything and hitting the road with enough meat to feed the entire block. (Psst…. Don’t let the Wayzata address fool you: The prices are really reasonable—$5.29 for a 9-ounce bacon-wrapped filet?—and specials are frequent.)
