Butcher Cut Series 2016

Butcher Cuts Series

Our second annual Butcher Cut Series starts May 6th! We are teaming up with Washington Beef Commission and WA Ranchers. We are utilizing the best beef in the Northwest, St. Helen’s Premium Angus. It’s a delicious weekly offering designed to showcase Washington Premium Angus Beef, the best breed of cattle, noted for its flavor, tenderness and marbling.

Offered Friday evenings, May 6 through May 27 at the Capitol Hill and Ballard diners, Chef Nick Novello is presenting a different three-course savory tasting each week that focused on whole-animal use and highlights the superior flavor of Washington Premium Angus Beef. “The Washington Beef Premium Angus program is proof that genetic and lineage along with responsible farming produces a product with unbeatable flavor,” said Skillet Chef Nick Novello. “Washington Beef shares Skillet’s conviction for whole animal use and we are excited to share an amazing menu that highlights homegrown beef, supports our local ranchers, and ushers guests beyond the safe filet mignon and rib eye.”

Bottom line: whole-animal use, supporting local agriculture, and eating delicious food is the right thing to do. Join us as we showcase often over-looked cuts from local Washington Premium Angus Beef.
