The full menu will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and after 8, diners can get takeout orders from the shop's new walk-up window. Meat & Co. will be open until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, with a special late-night menu.
Meat & Co. is modeled after the Crown Street's inventive approach to its bar – fresh, premium ingredients; unusual combinations and preparations and careful, balanced composition. The menu features 10 unique sandwiches like a "PLT," with porchetta, arugula, tomato confit and paprika aioli; the "God Forbid" with roast beef, liverwurst, Landaff cheese, balsamic red onion jam, sesame and coriander; and the steak & cheese, with ribeye, crispy onions and malt vinegar. "The Opposition" melds chicken braised in ancho chile sauce with crumbled chevre, blueberry compote and carrot slaw, and the "Benny Franks" has thin-sliced turkey, sharp provolone, fig jam and whole grain mustard.
Meat & Co. is at 116 Crown St. in New Haven. Information: 203-776-6328 and meatandcompany.com.
