All good things must come to an end right?
Well, good sh*t is coming to an end on 7th Avenue at the end of this year.
Carnegie Deli has decided to close their doors after 79 long years. Boooooooo!
"At this stage of my life, the early mornings to late nights have taken a toll, along with my sleepless nights and grueling hours that come with operating a restaurant business..." Harper Levine, the deli's owner has said,
"I’m very sad to close the Carnegie Deli but I’ve reached the time of my life when I need to take a step back."
You have about 3 more months to get your hands on one last Woody Allen sandwich, and you better run... have you seen this sandwich??!!!
According to Eater, the deli has had its fair share of setbacks over the last few years including: an illegal gas hook-up (this caused a forced year-long closure for the deli), a wage lawsuit filed by the Deli's employees, and a scandalous divorce between the owner and her husband.
If you look past the block long tourist lines, the extremely pricy sandwiches, and the corrupt history, you'll still find one of the cities longest-running Jewish delis.
There is light at the end of this dark, dark tunnel... Levine does plan on keeping the Las Vegas and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania locations opens.
But you should still run and get that Woody Allen sandwich. Seriously, go on your lunch break.Run! They close for good on December 31st!
