Aptly located in Chicago’s meatpacking district, Publican Quality Meats is a whole-animal butcher shop, specializing in sausage and charcuterie. We strive for quality in all facets - from the products we offer to the service we provide, we take pride in sourcing from local, organic farms and the most credited suppliers.
From pastries and a full-service barista, to sandwiches and charcuterie, Publican Quality Meats offers a café menu available for guests to enjoy at the shop, or to take away for breakfast, lunch or dinner on the go.
We are proud to carry a wide array of boutique provisions and ingredients hand selected by our culinary team, and made by artisans that care as much about quality as we do.
With close to 200 retail items, Publican Quality Meats provides goods that may be otherwise difficult to come by, as a well as the convenience of a single destination for those looking to fulfill a grocery list. Some of our favorite products include artisanal olive oils, preserved tomatoes, spice blends, small production cheeses, seasonal produce, craft beer and old world wines.
