Yet another Tampa Bay restaurant is getting creative with its space. Speciality salad concept Greenstock will now double as a butcher shop called St. Pete Meat & Provisions. But don’t freak out, there won’t be a massive slab of meat hanging from the ceiling near the romaine.

Instead, St. Pete Meat & Provisions is a digital butcher shop. That’s right, you can choose from a hefty butcher case from your phone, tablet or computer through or order by phone at 727-350-4721. 

According to a press release, St. Pete Meat & Provisions is a creative collaboration between local restaurateurs David and Erica Benstock, along with entrepreneurs and Greenstock partners Brooke Boyd, owner of Hype Group and Peter Boyd, owner of Boyd Construction Company.

“I saw an opportunity to serve the St. Pete community, presenting a new approach to buying restaurant-quality meats and cooking products,” Chef David Benstock wrote.

The meat lineup includes butcher shop essentials like beef, poultry, pork as well as lamb and veal. Customers can also be on the lookout for weekly butch cut specials like lamb sausage, chimichurri marinated skirt steak, and brussel sprout kimchi.

“Consumers have largely embraced e-commerce for their grocery purchases since COVID-19 took the world by storm, and I believe my guests should have access to restaurant-quality food without having to step foot in a restaurant or specialty market,” Benstock explains.

When it comes to specialty items, Benstock is also stocking the online menu with handcrafted seasonings, rubs, salad dressings, and cooking oils.

Once you place your order, select a pick up time and then slide over to Greenstock to snatch your goodies. 

Just a heads up, pickup is available from 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Mon.-Sat., which means no Sunday service. 

Greenstock is located at 449 Central Ave. in St. Pete.

Embracing the future of the grocery industry, the team has found a new mission in their kitchen, bring it to yours.
