New artisan butcher shop opening in Worthington next week

Jack McLaughlin

Columbus will have one more artisanal butcher shop to its name soon: The Hungarian Butcher is opening for business next week.

The venture from former Ray Ray’s, The Refectory, and Tucci’s chef Dan Vargas will be holding its grand opening on Nov. 12. The shop will be located at 2177 W. Dublin-Granville Rd.

With a focus on local and sustainably-sourced meats, the shop will blend the best of old and new-world butchery into one place, as Vargas will draw on many techniques he learned from his grandmother, a first-generation Hungarian immigrant.

The new Worhtington space will feature cured meats such as szalonna, kolbasz, sonka, lonza, salami, bacon, head cheese, ham, a variety of sausages, and more.

Vargas’ new project is just one of several new craft butcher shops to enter the Columbus market lately. With the wide-reaching popularity of spots like The Butcher & Grocer, the city has also seen newcomer Macelleria open in Bexley last year, as well as long-standing local butcher Carfagna’s launch an interactive meat counter at their new Polaris mega-store.
