Fresh Cheese To Close on Endicott Street

The cheese shop, Fresh Cheese, a long-time fixture on Endicott Street will close its doors. Its proprietor, Carmen DiNunzio, is heading to a federal medical center to serve up to a six year sentence for his guilty pleas to state extortion, gaming and bribery charges involving the Big Dig.

DiNunzio, 51, of East Boston gained the nickname “The Cheeseman” as a result of operating the shop.

The building itself is up for sale. Elite Properties is listing the building for $1.475 million including the three residential units at 81-83 Endicott Street.

Carmen’s Kitchen in East Boston is expected to remain open.

  1. They’re reopening in the former Tutto Italiano on Fleet St. I talked to the shop manager the other day and he said they’re ready to open. No repeat of the Dairy Fresh deception: "We’re just closing to … improve the shop. Yeah, that’s the ticket!" This time I have no doubt, we’ll keep our best cheese shop.
