'tis the season (TO EAT EVERYTHING)
The holidays are just around the corner, and Publican Quality Meats is here to make your celebrations as delicious and stress-free as ever. Whether you're looking for a classic standing rib roast for New Year's Eve, or keeping a low profile with oysters and beef tenderloin, our friendly butchers have selected the highest quality offerings for any type of gathering.
Curious about how to prepare the ideal New Year's ham, or how to heat up avec's signature dates like a pro? Check out our linked recipes and cooking guides, straight from Chef de Cuisine Joe Frietze and our trusted purveyors.
It wouldn't be a holiday party without a magnificent standing rib roast! Ours come from Slagel Family Farm in Fairbury, IL, and they make for the perfect centerpiece on any table.
Here's the deal with our Ribeye: a full ribeye has eight bones, and we recommend ordering one bone for every two people (in other words, 8-10 oz. per person). If you're hosting a group of 15-18, a full ribeye is perfect. On the other side of the main-course category, our fantastic Strauss Free-Raised Beef Tenderloin average 5 lb. each at a recommended portion size of 6-8 oz. per person.
To make sure every bite of your roasts, ribeye and tenderloin are packed with flavor, we also have Steak Rub from Epic Spice, Au Jus, Horseradish Cream Sauce and Demi Glace.
In addition to beef, we’re offering Burger’s Smokehouse Spiral Cut City Ham from California, MO. The city ham is a wet-brined, bone-in ham, which comes with a glaze pack. Hams are 8 lbs on average. Fun fact: Burger’s is the oldest USDA-inspected smokehouse in the country, and first became certified in 1956.
Starters and sides
If you’re searching for the perfect kick-off to your holiday feast, look no further than our avec Dates with Piquillo Sauce. The same decadent morsels you know and love from our Randolph Street sister restaurant are available for purchase at PQM! Piquillo sauce sold separately, but heartily encouraged.
For a celebratory start to your gathering, we're also offering a variety of carefully selected oysters by the dozen. Pro tip: these won't come shucked, and are available for pre-order only.
While our charcuterie program is always evolving, the following items are readily available: Salumi, Pate, Deli Meats, Confit, Rillette, Ham, Bacon and Meat Pie. Assorted cheeses available as well. For Christmas, we're offering a butcher's selection of charcuterie based on your group size and preferences. For New Year's, we're offering plattered charcuterie only, which we recommend eating on the day of pick-up for optimal flavor.
Our bread comes straight from Publican Quality Bread’s Head Baker, Greg Wade. We’ll have plenty of loaves and rolls, perfect for serving with alongside your meal. Please note that while bread is not available for pre-ordering, you may purchase it when you arrive to pick your order up.
