Welcome to the Darien Butcher Shop

The Darien Butcher Shop serves Lower Fairfield County as a premiere neighborhood-style destination for the highest quality meat. Recognizing that the perfect meal doesn’t begin and end with only the meat itself, DBS also offers house-made, crowd-pleasing side dishes as well as a thoughtfully curated selection of gourmet specialty products, sandwiches and pantry items.

Labor Day Specials

Labor day is the twilight in which summer burgers and sausages on the grill start to include smoked brisket and heartier fare, the best of both worlds!

Darien Butcher Shop’s Offerings

Darien Butcher Shop Spatchcock Chicken
The spatchcock is the ideal grilling bird. We start with our organic, pasture raised chicken, rub it with a little paprika then butterfly it and remove the breast bone. Serve with arugula salad.

“Mutton” Chops
Made with young lamb these gustatory malaprops are juicy, tender and flavorful. I recommend grilling hot with a little extra char and serve with our DBS Tatziki

Burger Selection
It is “burger time” after all!
DBS Dry-Aged Burger
Lamb Burger Pasture raised all natural Colorado Lamb
DBS Bacon Cheese Burger the classic bacon burger stuffed with a creamy cheese blend
