On Fridays, we feature five food finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  Today is a special Friday because it is the Grand Opening of the much-anticipated new nose-to-tail butcher, JM Stock Provisions & Supply, at 709 W. Main St.  To mark the day, we are featuring the picks of the butcher’s owners, James Lum III and Matt Greene, the Virginia natives who worked together at Brooklyn’s acclaimed butcher, The Meat Hook.  James and Matt’s picks:

1)  Cheeseburger at Riverside Lunch.  “It’s pretty much everything I want in a burger, and Riverside is everything I want in a restaurant.” – Matt

2)  Blueberry Cake Donut at Spudnuts.  “Life altering.” – James

3)  Aioli at MAS Tapas.  “It made me rethink how I make aioli.” – Matt

4)  Everything at The BBQ Exchange.  “Go hungry and order everything.” – James

5)  Pimento Cheese Fritters at Maya.  “If there’s a dish involving pimento cheese on a menu, I get it.  This one doesn’t disappoint.” – James
