Second Avenue Deli Not Opening Next Week–Maybe Next Month

A spokesperson for the Lebewohl family called The Observer this morning to clarify that — contrary to yesterday’s Real Deal article — the Second Avenue Deli is not opening next week on 33rd Street near Third Avenue.

NY1 follows up today with some additional details about the hallowed eatery’s new digs:

The finishing touches for the new kitchen are underway. The tables are ready to be set, and the soda fountain is ready to go, with Bosco on tap.

According to NY1, the deli is “expected to open within the next month.”
