A Long-Standing Family Business Remembers Previous Generations

Although Stanley Lobel never knew his grandfather Nathan, he describes how he slaughtered his own farm-raised steers and delivered cuts of meat to neighbors and residents in the town of Scharnitz, Austria, where Nathan grew up. Stanley’s grandfather was one of six children and along with being a farmer and butcher, he also served as mayor of his small European town in the late 1800s.

“Dad was the best butcher and teacher I ever had,” remembers Evan Lobel of his father Leon who passed away 12 years ago.

Working together in the small 600-square-foot space was like a perfectly orchestrated dance—each would anticipate the other’s moves, and to this day Evan feels extremely lucky and grateful to have had so many memorable moments working so closely with his father.

Spotlight on 5th-Generation Butcher Evan Lobel

It’s no exaggeration to say that Evan Lobel grew up in the business. “After I learned to walk, my father put a knife in my hand and said, ‘Start cutting, son,’” says the fifth-generation butcher, whose father Leon began taking his young son to work at the Madison Avenue shop in the early 1960s.

Evan describes his father, who passed away in 2006, as his Superman. He was very strict and slowly brought Evan into the business by making sure he learned every aspect of the trade from sweeping the floors to working the cash register. This early training gave Evan a well-rounded approach and an understanding that no task was beneath him—he was expected to perform the work as well or better than any other employee.
