Fresh Off the Hoof
Photograph by William Albert Allard

A sharp knife, sharp wit, and tender veal help keep Frank Susi in business at the Abruzzese Meat Market on Salem Street. In 1962, when Susi was 21, he and his uncle opened the shop, named for their home region in Italy. In those days it was one of many authentic Italian butcher shops in the North End. Today only a few remain, supplanted by trendy restaurants. “I don’t know what will happen to my shop in the future,” says Susi. “But for now, I make a living out of it. I love to do it. You talk with people. The days go by quick.”
