House Of Prime Meat - Astoria, NY

Costas Moratos and master butcher Billy Skiathitis are the friendly and savvy team behind House of Prime Meat in Astoria, which has made a huge impact on the Ditmars scene.

 They want to give Astoria residents a return to the old-fashioned butcher shop experience. As Costas so aptly put it, "we want to change the way that people shop for meat. We want everyone to enjoy the best quality of aged prime steaks at a great price!"

This clean, modern butcher shop is located just steps from the N/Q Ditmars Blvd. Station. There's no excuse not to stop by and treat yourself to the finest cuts of USDA Prime NY strip steak, bone-in ribeye, T-bone and organic pork chops. Billy's signature chicken, beef, pork, lamb or amazing filet mignon souvlaki skewers can be ordered organic and are very popular items.

Billy marinates the meat overnight and dresses it up with oregano, salt, pepper and a touch of garlic. There's nothing fancy going on here. "Simple is always better," Billy explained. That's why they sell hundreds of souvlaki sticks a week.

Being a butcher is a family tradition. Billy's grandfather was an artisan butcher, as well. Prior to joining forces with his good friend Costas to open House Of Prime Meat, Billy worked in various restaurants, wholesalers and butcher shops.

Billy used to work in the neighborhood and told Costas that Ditmars would make a great location for their new venture. All meats are antibiotic free and many of them are also natural and organic. Now more than ever before, we are mindful of the food that we put on the table for our family to eat.

On top of one of the refrigerator display cases you can find bottles and containers of Mentis Estate extra virgin olive oil imported from Greece. This is good stuff. Costas and Billy intend to add a condiments section to the shop with natural ingredients that can season and enhance the taste of your meat. Feel a little challenged when it comes to seasoning and marinating all the different kinds of meats? Billy will very patiently walk you through every step of cooking, including spicing up your meats and is always happy to share a couple of old family recipes.
