Savenor's reopens its Cambridge location today after a major renovation. Previously, owner Ron Savenor told Eater that the changes are meant to evolve the space into "a dedicated butcher shop" with a smaller (but entirely local) produce section. "You're going to walk in and see all these beautiful meat cases, a beautiful dry-aging box...it'll be really nice," said Savenor. "And I didn't want to lose that feel of being able to wait on the customer, because people love that and I love doing that, so we have butcher blocks there too, and I have a big butcher block in the back for whole animal butchery and doing demos."
Savenor's originally opened at the same location in 1939 but burned down in the early 1990s, at which point a new location opened in Beacon Hill. Eventually, a new Cambridge store was built on the site of the original one, and these days, the company includes the two stores as well as a wholesale division.
