The goods: Butcher Shop brings Miami’s first beer hall butcher hybrid to Wynwood.

Ambience: The self-service indoor/outdoor restaurant is outfitted with a spacious courtyard, wooden tables, a full bar and a 24-foot butcher case displaying fresh meat.

The grub: USDA Prime Black Angus beef, organic poultry, fish, pork, duck and house-made sausage.  Executive chef Dustin Ward oversees a reasonably-priced menu: Starters $6-$12, burgers and mains $9-$24

Starters include potato and cheese pierogies, German pretzels with Bavarian mustard and grilled beef, chicken and salmon kabobs. A dozen varieties of sausages are offered, each served in a pretzel bun with German sauerkraut. Burgers options range from beef with bacon and gorgonzola to organic turkey patty with a potato salad and beets.

Verdict: German sausages and beer are the specialty at this al fresco Wynwood spot.
