In 2012, Dutch’s owner Jay Ashmore convinced chef Jim Cornwell to help him gut a defunct Starbucks in East Hyde Park and turn it into a luxe larder stocked with boutique wine, farmstead cheese, natural meats, stellar craft beers, and artisanal salumi. Neither was prepared for the runaway success that followed.
With the addition of Patrick Hague (a.k.a. our sausage sensei), Dutch’s has been on a tear, offering the finest in locally-raised meats, house-linked sausages, and bespoke charcuterie to the starving masses. When they aren’t cranking out the best burgers in the city, they put together bountiful party platters like this one. Sadly, this photo is not scratch-n-sniff, but their kitchen is open late if your stomach’s making noises.
