    Jerry Tusan introduced us to The Blind Butcher, the Castro’s newest premier steak house, for the June My Favorite Place.  We had such a good time that we're returning again in December.

    With a casual and comfortable vibe, The Blind Butcher's menu offers hearty main dishes and a variety of appetizers and desserts.  The wait staff are very accommodating, and the menu includes vegan and vegetarian options.  As a recent dining companion mentioned to Paul, every dish is excellent at The Blind Butcher.
