Bryan Mayer left the world of music and walked into a newly opened grocer in Brooklyn, NY. He quickly found his place behind the fish and meat counter. It wasn’t long after that this grocer became one of the few whole animal butcher shops and sustainable fish counters in NYC. Bryan then found himself heading up north to Fleisher’s Grass-fed and Organic Meats where he served as head butcher and instructor of their butcher training program. Bryan is now in Philadelphia consulting with farms and CSA’s (PhillyCowShare, Wyebrook Farm) He’s preparing, with chef and Philly restauranteur Michael Pasquarello, to open Kensington Quarter,their butcher shop, kitchen, bar and classroom working with local, sustainable farms.
