Frank Catronovo and Frank Falcinelli quietly closed the delicatessen and provisions store that was right next door to their hit restaurant Prime Meats. Their website confirms the shutter, and notes that many of their products are still available online. Still, this is sad news for fans of their fresh cuts of meat and goods to take home.
The old store has been hosting overflow from the (always crowded) bar area at Prime Meats for the last three weekends, and the space is set up for cocktails and oyster-shucking. A tipster sends in the above photo taken early today, which you'll notice now has the word "oysters" slapped across the door. Eater hears that it's only open on the weekends for now, but perhaps the hours will expand. Check this space for more details as they become available.
