Do most of the grocery stores have it available at Easter time? Or is there somewhere better I should check?

I was told that it's hard to find the same cuts that restaurants get, so a standing rib roast will do, if it's a good quality. I found a recipe that's supposed to taste just like restaurant prime rib, so I'd like to try cooking it at home.

Try Blood Farm in Groton, MA

They are a family run slaughter house and wholesale meat market. They do a lot of special orders.

Thanks, Morris. They're a little out of the way for me. Should've mentioned that I'm a little north of Concord. I have to go to the airport next week though, so somewhere in Manchester would be doable too.

I did come up with The Meat House in Pembroke in my search. They don't show prime rib on their website, but I'll call and ask about it.

As an aside, while I was searching, I came across healthybuffalo.com in Chichester. They sell all sorts of exotic meats, even wild boar and kangaroo. I've been by there numerous times and never knew!

There is a Meat House in Concord, on the corner of 106 and Route 3. I would try there first.

If you find yourself up near Meredith, try The Wine'ing Butcher.

Geez, you can get it at Market Basket/Demoulas (and it is top-notch)
They will ask you if you know what you are buying (I usually get ribs one through seven, and it is big)....
If you want to go to a more 'exclusive' you can go to Butcher Boy in North Andover, but you will pay more for the same thing.

Closest to you would be Bull Run in Hooksett, just north of Exit 9 off Rte 93 (I've never bought from them, just know it's there from driving past). Mr. Steer in Londonderry, McKinnon's in Salem or Portsmouth, or Prime Butcher in Hampstead. Market Basket has semi-boneless rib roast this week for 4.99/pound, and it was very good. Perhaps not as flavorful as a full rib roast, but pretty darn close and a GREAT price

Thanks, everyone. I'm going to check out most of those places. But I'll see what Market Basket has to offer first. $4.99 is a great price if it's at least choice or select grade. The Meat House is close to my storage unit, so I'll be going by there this weekend and will see what they have. They claim their beef is properly aged, like in the old days. I'd like to try a steak and see if it really tastes better. I don't mind paying extra if the quality is noticeably better. We don't eat steaks or prime rib that often.

I agree with SuperSparkle928. Check Market Basket. Their store here in Warner has great cuts of meat.
We raise all our own meat, except beef, so I'm pretty picky. With so much lamb, pork and goat in our freezer, we rarely eat beef. It's a special treat for us and Market Basket has not let us down. They too will custom cut you any size or shape.

Mr. Steer in Londondery is my butcher of choice. I will try the Meat House in Concord. I have not had an aged steak in years. Cook out season is almost here.

I've got gift certificates to the Meat House the last 2 Christmases. I was disappointed with their overpriced meat. I wouldn't spend my own money there. Just my opinion though.
