Just relax! We saw the signs going up months ago for the Meat House in Costa Mesa. And we’ve lost count on the e-mails coming through begging us to check it out. It was with great sadness because we love locally owned Celestino’s Meats, also on 17th Street, so much. But OK, there’s room for more, and the Meat House is different, not better, just different.
The Meat House is an East Coast-based franchise “neighborhood butcher.” The Costa Mesa location marks its debut into California. It carries everything that you’d need for a gourmet meal—minus fresh produce—but that’s fine. One of our favorite fresh produce stores, Growers Direct, is in the same center.
The Meat House is known for its restaurant grade meats, Kobe beef, dry-aged steaks and roasts, lamb, veal, poultry and even rare meats like ostrich etc for special ordering. It also carries Boar’s Head deli meats and cheeses priced lower than other markets. Select from fresh Sadie Rose artisan breads baked in Laguna Beach, gourmet cheeses, prepared sides dishes, boutique ice creams, and desserts. There are also fresh imported pastas from Italy, hard-to-find Chubby’s marinades from the East Coast, and a wine wall with more than 200 wines from which to choose.
Open daily 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. 103 E. 17th St. in Costa Mesa. 949.548.6328.
