What sets S. Ottomanelli apart from other meat companies in New York?

Our family has built a reputation on simple yet strong core values and dedication. S. Ottomanelli seeks the best quality meats (and only the best) for our customers. We consistently offer our customers friendly and courteous service. And although our meat is celebrated for its superior quality, we are always fair with our pricing.

We offer our customers Prime Quality Meats and hard to find Wild Game Meats that most supermarkets and meat retailers don’t carry.

“I've known Ottomanelli for years. They’re a New York Institution. The best London Broil I have ever had, including restaurants and steak houses. Try it. The hamburger is a must as well.”

"Ottomanelli are famous butcher shops from New York City. They are really reputable. I know the family. I have done an Emeril live show in their butcher shop. Their meat is really delicious. When I took Ottomanelli home my family flipped over the Ottomanelli steaks.”

Ottomanelli senior

“Proud Neighborhood Butcher, Salvatore Ottomanelli”

"In 1900, Gennaro Ottomanelli left Bari, Italy to seek his fortune selling cured meats from a Greenwich Village pushcart. This provided enough income to allow him occasionally to sail back home; sometimes he could even finance the travel of a few family members. Three years after Onofrio, his second son, was born in Manhattan, the boy was brought to his mother's family's farm in Bari. There he learned the butchering trade from his grandmother. In the 1930s, he returned to New York, where he and his brother, Joseph, ran the butcher shop that had supplanted Gennaro's pushcart."
