Charcuterie Maker: Barred Owl Butcher & Table

The focus on fresh, seasonal and local makes Barred Owl Butcher & Table the premier place to order charcuterie in Columbia. The restaurant’s whole-animal approach to butchery makes the plates special – think Dominican-style longanisa sausage and weisswurst. Try the house butcher board with salami cotto, capocollo, ‘nduja, head cheese, saucisson sec and coppa. (Photo by Aaron Ottis)
