The pandemic has changed a lot about how we go about our days, not the least of which is grocery shopping. While thankfully we’ve moved beyond the binge buying that ran rampant in the early days of lockdown, we’ve picked up a few bulk-buying tricks along the way. At first we did it to limit exposure to the virus in tight spaces (and still do) but we also learned that having more than a few days worth of groceries on hand, well, just makes sense: less time spent in the car, less money on gas, more time for doing the things we enjoy (when we’re not going stir crazy at home). But the fact remains: Cooking is delicious escape. While you certainly can and should support your local butcher, it’s nice (and crazy convenient) to be able to have some of the top meat in the country shipped straight to you. Whether you’re in the mood for beef with a old-school New York pedigree, or the sort of prime Wagyu typically only available at the finest restaurants, there’s a mail order meat service to fit your taste. Here are four we love.
