After leaving his mark on the La Vache neighborhood with L’Étal du Goût, Gaël Tarantola moved closer to the center of Toulouse to up his butchery game in a shop that goes against the grain. Boucherie Gras is all done up in white tiling and neon lights, and feels a bit like a bar: you’ll likely chew the fat before bringing home the beef! In the cold room, you’ll find beautiful pieces (like the Simmental rib-eye steak dry-aged for 45 days), and behind the counter, incredible homemade charcuterie in addition to the somewhat traditional deli fare: porchetta, sausage rolls, chimichurri or bacon and smoked cheddar sausages, eggs in aspic, pommes dauphine… The man also runs an épicerie and wine shop on top of all that, in addition to organizing banging music events. // Auguste Marie
