It took two years, but the Larchmont Meateria has finally changed hands, an event anticipated even in the New York Times.
But regulars of the Village’s most venerable butcher and grocery story apparently don’t have to worry that the new owners are going to change the way Victor Ciampi has been doing business there for 40+ years.
“Everything is going to stay the same,” said Mamaroneck’s Flora Guglielmo, who, along with her son and daughter, bought the Addison Street store after 30 years as shoppers there.
“We may try to expand a little bit at a time but basically it’ll be the same place,” she said.
A former high school nurse, this is Guglielmo’s first foray into the food business. But, as the daughter of a chef, she has no doubts that she’s well equipped to keep the quality and spirit of the Meateria alive and well. And will no doubt, once again, sell more than 1000 tenderloins between Christmas and New Year’s.
