Akimenko Meats?

From this, kind of grumpy, post about the term "artisan" and it's relation to butchers by Ruhlman... I see there is a new butcher coming to Cambridge. Of note to me, Vadim Akimenko apparently managed both the Cambridge and Boston Locations of Savenor’s Market... and yet his goal is:
...to make local and sustainable meats available year-round to all members of the community. Akimenko Meats does not believe that eating with an ethical conscience should be a privilege that only the wealthy can afford.

Something I think it's hard to say about Savenor's.

From what I can tell they've raised the money to secure the spot for the shop which is good news obviously. I'm following them on Twitter now, so hopefully won't miss whenever the shop opens.
