A meat palace grows in Brooklyn

Featuring an ultra-lacquered front bar, a curvy, jigsaw-esque slatted ceiling, fixtures made of table saw blades, and walls of exposed brick/barnyard wood covered with photos of the owners grandpa and more vintage saws, Anselms' a wildly rustic hat trick from the owner of nearby Fette Sau and Spuyten Duyvil, originally conceived as a simple hot dog joint that quickly steam rolled into a temple of meat excess rivaled only by Lex Steele's pants. Beef includes Axe Handle rib eyes, classic patty melts, and their famed, garlic-laced butchers steak, but seafoodies will rejoice at offerings ranging from monster prawns to whole mackarel.
