Sabra pizza on Central Ave Cedarhurst closing today!

After 41 years in operation Sabra Pizza is closing and I assume the adjoining Ruthies as well. Anyone know why? They appeared to be busy whenever I went.

Now there is a big gaping hole on Central Ave with Sabra, Ruthies and King David's Deli all being closed. Mind you there is no shortage of kosher eateries with two pizza stores within a mnutes walk from Sabra, still a shame since Sabra's pizza was the best.

    I agree with you that Sabra was the best. Anyway, I heard that their rent was being raised by a significant amount and they couldn't afford to stay in business. It's a shame.

      I went today with my granddaughter. Sabra did not have any fries which my granddaughter wanted so we went to Davids. Not crazy about their pizza but they were packed, hardly a place to sit. Sabra meanwhile was empty, they left us in a wimper.

      The high rent did them in. Same reason King David closed, same landlord.

        I went to Sabra's reincarnation "pizza-le". Same menu and workers. They renovated the inside (finally). Pizza was as good as Sabra's

          Thanks for the heads up. My restricted diet precludes pizza but in 17 pounds from now I know where to go :)

            They have a salad bar. Not sure if sabra had it also. Good luck with your diet...
