avenor’s Market is one of Boston’s culinary landmarks, but there’s a secret hiding behind the butcher’s counter that goes beyond even Kobe beef. Savenor’s works with game reserves all over the globe to provide rare, exotic meats including bear and alligator. So if for some reason you have a craving for yak thigh, lion steak, or python filet, stop in. While you’re at it you can sign up for Savenor’s Bacon Society or Meat of the Month club. Moravek

Savenor’s patriarch Jack Savenor was a frequent guest on Julia Child’s The French Chef, and Child was a regular customer, along with assorted Rockefellers, Kennedys, and Schlesingers.
