Jerry's Deli - West Hollywood

stephaniesweet Mar 26, 2013 02:07 PM

My sister stopped by Jerry's Deli in West Hollywood last night to get some soup for a sick friend. She overheard some people talking to a manager about the fact that this Jerry's location was going to close at the end of May.

Does anyone have any idea if this is true?

    From LA Eater It's official Jerry's West Hollywood is closing. They said they will look for another location in the area. They remain for now in Studio City, MdR, Woodland Hills, Encino, Westwood and Miami.

      A recent news report said they are giving up their space but will return in (June?) 2014..I havent heard that again so I am wondering what is going on.

      For years I've ordered the "chicken curry salad" to take out.
      It steadily got smaller and more expensive so it's not a surprise they're closing.
      Many of us are hoping a great food establishment replaces it because of its close proximity to Cedars, where, most recently, most of their business comes from.
      The area needs something fabulous and memorable.

        They should send Robert Irvine in for an episode of Restaurant Impossible at EVERY Jerry's location. We could spend days arguing which was worst.

          The Jerry's Marnia Del Rey location would be absolutely perfect for a west side Brent's (he said hungrily).

            As the prices grew at Jerry's the quality dropped. When they came up with their idea of selling two sizes of sandwiches (LA small 4oz & Ny big 7oz ) they raised the price and shrunk the size, instead of selling their 1/2 sandwiches. I was done forever. Long live Brent's.

              Can you believe their plain Pastrami 7oz sandwich is $17 & their pastrami lean sandwich is $19.50. A true deli crime at Jerry's.

          If Jerry's is closing quietly, good for the company.

          If Brent comes to the west side, we will have wonderful food to compete with our good delis.

          The whole scenario is a win-win.

            I did a little research on my own and found out that Jerry's WILL be closing on May 31. A little searching on Google found:
            Do a search in the pdf document for Jerry's.
            Jerry's gave legal notice to the State of California under the WARN Act declaring their closure.

              Prayer to the Deli Gods - please put Brents in that location.

                I've had some sub-par food at Jerry's, to be sure. But the pastrami on rye with Russian and cole slaw is one of the best in town (yes, yes, after Langer's and Brent's, blah blah) but it gets no love. I'm from NY -- Katz's, 2nd Ave deli, etc -- and I love pastrami, and Jerry's is WAY better than most! Recently had it when visiting someone at Cedar's ... darn good.

                  I had it recently too and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was.

                  rumor has this one, the Encino one, the Woodland Hills one and Solley's all closing shortly, the only difference being exactly what date.

                    despite all the love NOT for Jerry's, I love the place, especially the location in Studio City.

                      No, but it would certainly be good news!

                        +1. Jerrys is horrid. It is a wannabe and I wannabe at Brent's.

                          All they have to do is try their own food. If they think that's good - they should be in the shoe business. Or something.

                            I can't comment on the food since I haven't eaten in a Jerry's in eons. I don't know if the West Hollywood location is closing, but I sometimes eat after a show with some musician friends and they like Greenblatt's Deli on Sunset. I'm pretty sure it's not "the very best," but the food is more than decent, it's open until 2 pm and has a free lot. One of the gals got a matzo ball soup and it looked very good. http://www.greenblattsdeli.com/

                              Granted; Brent's is probably the best deli but why is it that nobody mentions the legendary Art's? Is it THAT bad?

                                The last time I was there the service was really bad, the food was mediocre, the prices were equal or higher compared to Brent's and the parking was not at all convenient. All totaled up...I will pass!

                                  That sounds about right. I'd put it on a par with Cantors,
