Out of the Blue

Stage Deli’s Closing Ends a Restaurant War has the unfortunate news about this New York institution. I have always been a Carnegie Deli man myself, but the pair co-existed in what seemed like an important deli ecosystem, and its closing and my associated regrets make me feel a little old. And I was already on track for feeling that way, as we met some friends for dinner last night, and because they needed to get back to their kids relatively early, we had a 6:30 reservation, which made me feel a little like Jerry Seinfeld going to dinner with his parents after the early bird special... "Bernie, look who's eating at six o'clock!"

With all the ache of seeing such a place close I must say they really lagged behind carnegie.. my wife and I went there once and didn't come back.. they were always half empty while carnegie stayed packed. It looked like a place that had it's best days behind it..
Nevertheless, it is a shame, and if Carnegie will go that way it would be a real shame.

I wonder how my favorite Deli, 2nd Avenue Deli (at 162 East 33rd Street between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue) is doing..
