Last week, I blogged (no, lamented) about the demise of the 2nd Ave. Deli. Yesterday, on NPR, I heard that Jack Lebewohl's son Joshua had applied for an NYC liquor license for a deli on Third Avenue in Murray Hill, somewhat further uptown from the Second Avenue Deli. That report reminded me why Abe's brother Jack decided to call it quits: the landlord of the building that housed the 2nd Ave. Deli raised the rent from $24,000/mo. to $33,000/mo., and Jack decided it wasn't worth it to continue.

But the news is good, because apparently Josh hasn't thrown in the towel! After all, he's just 26; this is all good to him. There may be a resurrection of New York's best kosher deli recipes after all. Thank G-d.
