Moriarty Meats started in January 2018 as a part time venture, as both of us kept our full time jobs while we tested the waters. In April 2019 to devote all of our energies to building this business, and in July we purchased the building at 1650-1652 Elmwood Avenue. We will continue to operate on Grant Street until we move and are targeting early 2020.

He worked as a butcher in Avallon, France, while completing the program. He also draws from his experience at La Escuela de Hosteleria de Leioa (Spanish culinary arts and hospitality) and various kitchens in Spain to offer a unique perspective of meat and cooking.
