The full statement:
Porcellino's, a community butcher shop and sundry store, will open this August on Brookhaven Circle here in Memphis, TN. Ticer and Hudman plan to create a space meant to help connect their customers with their meals in their own homes.
With head butcher Aaron Winters, Porcellino's will offer cuts sourced from whole animal fabrication. Sourcing from regional farms, such as Newman Farm in Myrtle, MO for their pork and lamb, and Double H Farm in Nashville, TN for beef, they hope to grow a wider partnership between the community of eaters and the farmers who provide the food we eat.
Porcellino's will also feature fresh and dried pastas, made daily, and charcuterie, both fresh and cured, as well as cookbooks and other items that will assist the home cook in preparing a meal. During lunch, the butcher shop will serve sandwiches and coffee. Attached to Porcellino's is the Double Bird, a community wine and cocktail bar that will offer cichetti, a small plates style of food.
Meant to serve as a gathering place for the community, Porcellino's and the Double Bird will bring together Ticer and Hudman's philosophy that a great meal includes a sense of community. Porcellino's also serves as the third leg of their Brookhaven Circle plans in East Memphis, with their award winning restaurants Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen and Hog & Hominy, as a place where parents will bring their children and create a legacy of eating well.
