Butcher’s House Brasserie
Butcher’s House is a modern brasserie centered around the antique craft of butchery, helmed by chef-owner Jeoffrey Offer. Located at South Coast Collection in Costa Mesa, Butcher’s House offers a menu focused on dry-aged meats and rustic brasserie-style dishes representative of Offer’s hometown of Toulouse in the south of France. Along with premium steaks, guests can enjoy a selection of house specialties like Toulouse sausage, country-style pork paté and duck confit. Offer’s expertise in pastry arts is displayed through rustic-yet-refined desserts, including a chocolate mousse and crème brûlée. During lunch, Butcher’s House serves sandwiches, salads and dry-aged beef burgers. Beverages include a curated selection of French wines, artisan beers on draft and a menu of classic French-inspired fermented cocktails crafted with soju-based spirits. Much like the menu itself, the restaurant’s open kitchen puts the artistry and craftsmanship of butchery on display as chefs expertly trim and truss premium cuts of meat and sizzling steaks kissed by the flames of a wood-fired Santa Maria-style grill.
