Midweek Photo: M&M Catering

M&M Catering in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn

Jamie Guigno took this photo of the inside of M&M Catering on East 27th Street and Avenue Z the day it closed down. Before M&M Catering it was M&M Meat Market – both businesses were owned by her father, Mike Fischetti. The employees – many worked there for years – wrote the above on the door as a final goodbye. For those that remember, M&M was a neighborhood staple. But Fischetti, who passed recently, lives on through the non-profit organization he founded, Guardians of Hydrocephalus Research Foundation. You may recognize the name from the fading ad on the side of the same building that hosted M&M, which for many of us is as much a curious legend of the Bay as anything else. We’ll have more on the Guardians of Hydrocephalus and the Fischetti family in the weeks to come – but we thought this was a touching photo.

Jamie Guigno is a local photographer, and can be booked for private events through her website. You can see more photos from her Flickr photostream.
