This beloved location has been around since 1939 when Ibrahim Savenor came from Lithuania and opened up shop. In 1992 it suffered a devastating fire was finally restored in 2005 to wide acclaim.
Savenor’s Cambridge became a landmark when Julia Child and Jack Savenor struck up a kinship that lasted throughout their lives. Jack Savenor became Julia’s butcher and would source and provide items that Julia needed. She brought Jack on her televised show and history was made. Loyal customers fondly recall times when they would find Julia in the store and would be peeking in her basket to see what she was bringing home.
When Ronald took over the business he became Julia’s butcher and she encouraged him to reopen the Cambridge location to its original glory. When you come by the store you can see where Julia signed her initials and infamous “Bon Appetite” into the front entrance sidewalk.
