Magnani in Berkeley

This butcher shop delicatessen is not packed to the rafters with products, but is worth a mention for the quality of its poultry, including fresh Muscovy duck and rabbit as well as some red meat, and its selection of olive oils and flavored Balsamic vinegars. It's really the vinegars that attract me to this small Berkeley, Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood shop. If fig, black currant, or pomegranate suit your taste, buy their empty bottles, fill them up and expand your Balsamic horizons. You can bring the bottle back for a refill another time, or two.
