9th Street Deli

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you, if you haven’t already heard, that after 37 years, 9th Street Deli is closing. Today will be their last lunch.

All is not lost, however, as the new owners may continue to run the sandwich shop for a time as they prepare to turn it into a health foods store. Or something.

The current owners have run the place for six years. One is looking to open a non-profit deli (her words, not mine). I didn’t have the heart to ask of that’s not what she’d already been doing. Tough business.
