SHOP OWNERS Mathew Malin and Andrew Goetz.

Behind the bold, white letters in the 200 north block of Larchmont Blvd., a new and fresh space opened with revelers enjoying gourmet cheeses and martinis to welcome New York-based owners Andrew Goetz and Mathew Malin. Guests admired the spare and chic architecture not to mention Malin and Goetz’s famed “cures” for all that ails – dry hair, wrinkled skin and razor burn.

Eating, drinking and enjoying a bite of the Big Apple on Larchmont were: Architecture/Interiors Magazine’s Mike Powers and Anthony Iannacci, Merle Ginsberg, Dr. Peter Kopelson, Brooke Bryant, Laura Medina, Brenna Egan, and Malin and Goetz general manager Mathew Aguilar.
