While celebrating the one year anniversary of his popular Georgetown Butcher shop, owner Wendell Allsbrook announced that he had signed a lease on a second location. GM has learned that that location is on Wisconsin Ave. on Book Hill.
Specifically, GM has learned that the shop will open in two adjoining spaces at 1524 and 1526 Wisconsin Ave. These spaces previously hosted the Georgetown Olive Oil Co. and Little Birdies Boutique. Allsbrook told the Post that he hoped to be open at the new location within 90 days.
Since opening last year in one of the worst bits of bad luck timing, Georgetown Butcher has developed a great reputation and a solid fan base. GM suspects that this second location will gain even more fans as it is much more convenient for residents who don’t want to schlepp down past the canal. (The shop does offer a great delivery service it should be noted).
The second location will offer more prepared foods than the Grace St. spot. It will also use the additional space to bring in larger carcasses of meat to be butchered down, and thus increase the varieties of cuts available for customers.
As someone who lives right around the corner from this spot, GM could not possibly be more excited. And he suspects his neighbors will be similarly thrilled at the news.
