Orange Coast Magazine Names Butcher's House Brasserie their 2022 Restaurant of the Year

Butcher's House Brasserie wasn't even a gleam in Jeoffrey Offer's eye when COVID-19 arrived. He was too busy running the kitchens of Moulin to contemplate much else until restaurants closed in March 2020. Suddenly idle, this butcher's son could crystallize a plan to go solo, and his dream brasserie was born in the final rainy days of December 2021.

Previously inhabited by Pueblo, the kitchen’s new heart is a Santa Maria-style grill that seasons half the menu’s dishes with notes of almond and citrus wood smoke. Dry-aged steaks and chops are center stage, supported by burgers, salads, and sides. Dazzling house specialties are versatile small plates, including a potent Toulouse sausage—house-made with large-grind pork in a snappy casing. Rustic pork pâté and spicy lamb Merguez sausage are also from scratch. Duck confit is pitch perfect. Offer is a native son of Toulouse, and these dishes reveal much pride and affection for his French homeland.
