The French Butcher

Auckland Frenchiephiles will be delighted to welcome The French Butcher, a très rustique new food store in Parnell/Newmarket selling meats, mustards and meals-to-go. The building formerly housed a dressmaking business, and the new proprietor is justifiably proud of what he's done with the place, including some apparently quite substantial renovations he charmingly describes in broken English as “tidying”. You'll find The French Butcher near Kokako at 1 Ayr Street, and he's highly recommended for food now or later, as well as for that special Frenchiness you'd otherwise have to fly halfway around the world to experience.
