  1. I read a post about it on Eater too. UES definitely needs a good deli.

      Check out pastrami queen. Their pastrami can be slightly inconsistent once and a while but it usually great. Their Special hot dog is really good too. Small, great for take out but they do have table service.

        Good to know. Thanks. I pass it by on my way to work, but didn't know the quality. I have been a big fan of Sarge's (especially when I lived in Murray Hill).

    2. The first new Second Avenue Deli is not on Second Avenue, but rather off Third Avenue, on 33rd Street. The second Second Avenue Deli is similarly misnamed, because it’s going to be on First Avenue, at 75th Street. (Though, if you average them, you get Second Avenue.)

      Jeremy Lebewohl confirmed that his family was in advanced discussions to buy 1442 First Avenue, the current location of the Wicked Wolf bar, and to replace the space with another Second Avenue Deli. The owners are retiring, said Mr. Lebewohl, the nephew of Abe Lebewohl, the famed owner of the original deli, whose murder is still an unsolved mystery.

      The discussions are advanced enough that Mr. Lebewohl went before the community board to apply for a transfer of the liquor license.

      He declined to name a price for the property, as the deal isn’t signed yet.

      In the ideal world, he said, the deli would be open before the Jewish High Holy Days in September. However, he warned, “With all my experience with construction, there are unforeseen problems.”

        I not sure I get your point??? Because the actual venue is not situated on he same avenue as the original, there's no relevance? It's owned by the same family and serves the same menu as the original.

        What am I missing?

          I did not write this...found it on the internet

      2. I predicted they were going to open up multiple locations of 2nd avenue deli, that's only reason why they tried to relocate into a tin can. I guess it's better then no 2nd Ave. at all, and it will deflate some of the crowds, but the quality will surely suffer without Jeremy Lebewohl sitting at the registrer charging his arm and his leg for a tongue sandwich.
