Moriarty’s is making a move
For some weeks, Spree staffers have been seeing new temporary signage at the former location of Vino’s, 1652 Elmwood Avenue, which is right down the street from our offices. Word is that artisanal butchers Tom and Caitlin Moriarty are leaving their Grant Street storefront for this location. Moriarty Meats opened in 2018 to much acclaim, and is known for carrying locally sourced meat and adhering to Old World butchery standards. In talking with online publication Buffalo Rising, Caitlin Moriarty explained, “We hope to expand our workshop offerings and will have a commercial kitchen to do more with prepared foods. We are building out a new shop on the first floor.” The opening date is expected early this year.
