No hard feelings, says Nick Macri about his decision to close La Divisa Meats, his butcher stand at Reading Terminal Market.
Last day will be April 26.
Macri stepped away from the restaurant chef’s world in 2014 when he went to work as chef and butcher at Border Springs Farm’s Reading Terminal location. When Border Springs chief Craig Rogers stepped away in early 2015, Macri bought the stand and rebranded it as La Divisa, expanding the lamb menu to include high-end cuts and charcuterie. He later moved it to the 12th Street side.
“It’s simple,” Macri explained for the closing. “Not enough people were buying into what we were selling. There’s no failed partnership or eviction. It’s not from lack of effort. This has been going on enough time for me to realize that it’s not working out. We have a loyal customer base but just not enough of one."
