Eater.com has interviewed meat purveyors Marc Sarrazin and George Faison for Eater's 2011 Burger Week. Marc and George are both co-owners of Debragga & Spitler, an artisanal butcher and meat purveyor in the Meatpacking District. As one of the few meatpacking companies left in the MPD, Debragga provides meat to many of NYC's well known restaurants, including nearby Colicchio & Son's. Debragga sells meat wholesale to restaurants and operates a website for individuals to purchase great cuts of meat as well. Check out the interview here, and Debragga's website here.
