A Northwest Portland classic is heading to NoPo. Chop Butchery, the butcher’s counter and deli within City Market NW, will open a deli serving house-made sausages, espresso, and breakfast sandwiches, according to the co-owners.
The butcher’s counter, which has lived in City Market for 22 years, will leave Northwest Portland, opening the new restaurant in April. While the North Portland deli won’t have a butcher’s counter for by-the-pound meats, Chop St. Johns will serve its classic smoked meats, cured meats, and house sausages in various sandwiches. The menu is still under development, but it should include a handful of salads with locally sourced greens and sandwich favorites like its Italian Stallion, stacked with house ham, salami, and mortadella.
Co-owners Katie Lee Cundiff, Paula Markus, and Jim Stracener have begun updating the former Dub’s location on Lombard, giving the space a fresh coat of paint. Once it’s finished, Chop will have a counter where guests will place orders, around 15 tables, and a small grab-and-go section for takeout. The grab-and-go options will grow as the team gets settled. Stay tuned for more updates on St. Johns’ incoming deli.
