Last Saturday, New York City carnivores gathered at Meatopia, Josh Ozersky’s famed celebration of all things carnivorous. This celebration of meat joined together over forty-five chefs and half a dozen farmers from all over the country and displayed the most delicious exhibit of meat known to man.

From pulled pork to roasted goat and beef cheeks to sausage, chefs like Nate Appleman of Chipotle served chorizo tostadas and Michael Psilakis with Greek lamb offal, lined Pier 5 at Brooklyn Bridge Park for a night that only true meat-lovers could enjoy. ICE Students were also on site to lend a hand to the hungry. And what’s a plate full of meat without something to wash it down? The event also included two Amstel Light Beer gardens!

Among the festivities, Whole Foods hosted a three-part Best Butcher Competition and culinary demonstrations by Psilakis and Michael White of Marea.

Whether meat is the main star in your dinner or the perfect pair to side dishes, you’ve got to check out this event next year — it will more than “meat” your expectations.
