Everyone is reporting that the long-awaited Second Avenue Deli on 33rd St is opening on Monday, but I could swear I heard on New York radio station 1010 WINS this morning that it was open. As in, open at 7 a.m. I know that sounds crazy. Maybe I was still dreaming…or maybe they were having a special pre-opening breakfast for radio DJs.
Regardless, we're all excited. Gothamist has some great pictures of the new locale, and New York Magazine did a nice little Q&A with the new owner, 25-year-old Jeremy Lebewohl. Apparently they're doing a ceremonial salami-cutting of "nickel shtikel" links at 11 a.m. on Monday. See you there!
