Famed butcher, meat purveyor, and reality star Pat LaFrieda Jr. — whose custom burger blends and cuts show up on many of New York City's top menus — is working on his first "memoir/cookbook," to be released by Atria Publishing. Grub Street brings word that the as-yet-untitled book will feature family stories (the LaFrieda name has been in the meat business for three generations), recipes from some of LaFrieda's famous clients, and meat-buying tips, complete with "100 gorgeous coffee-table worthy photos of meat."

Additional details are slim, but the book already has an Amazon pre-order page and release date: May 2014.
