Meat your match.

Pasadena’s Meat District Co., a beef-intensive protein-friendly experience,  held its soft opening in late August.

The new eatery will mark the occasion by giving back to the local community.

The community-focused eatery,will be making a contribution on the children’s menu to benefit Young & Healthy, a local non-profit providing comprehensive healthcare to low-income children throughout greater Pasadena who lack or have inadequate health insurance.

Meat District Co. will donate all of the profits from its $1 vanilla ice-cream treat, housed in a kid-friendly fun, reusable toy, in support of the organization .

Meat District Co., which dry ages its meat in-house for a minimum of 21 days, is a modern nod to old-school butchers, prominently displaying clear refrigerated cases revealing hanging cured meats and an open kitchen that invites guests to witness the Chef’s charcuterie work.

Meat District Co. signature dishes include The Meat Hook, 10oz of chunks of prime dry aged NY sirloin, rib eye and fillet with peppers, onions and mushroom and grilled in restaurant’s own baste, actually served hanging, in a unique presentation.

Meat District Co. collaborated with design firm DS17 to create its blend of old-school charm and contemporary style in an open yet rustic space.

Watch for our review next week.

Meat District Co is in Old Pasadena at 69 North Raymond. (626) 765 9902. www.meatdistrictco.com.
