It caught my eye when driving down Chestnut last week. I like the blurb on the website which has the butcher's picture ... seems like someone who takes pride in his work ...
"Marina Meats is pleased to announce the return of Marina native son, Joey Gandolfo, a 3rd generation San Franciscan with over 20 years in the meat, fish and poultry business. For 10 years he was a former owner of Puccinni Meats, located at the present Marina Super location and has spent the past 13 years at Bryan’s Meats."
".His father was part owner of Joe & Ernie’s Fish and Poultry, which was located at Chestnut and Scott for over 20 years. Joey’s grandfather was a Sicilian Fisherman down at SF’s Fisherman’s Wharf. He has established relationships with fish brokers at the Wharf and will hand pick what he presents at Marina Meats every day."
The picture has Mr. Gandolfo holding a big fish.
It looked really nice from my drive-by. Now I'm wishing I stopped.
This is an off-shoot of Marina Super Market. From an old SF Chronicle report ...
" The new store ... will be like a neighborhood butcher,'' says Joe Gandolfo, who will partner with Marina Super owners Dan Manza, Ken Puccini and James Brett in the venture"
