It's official 2nd Avenue Deli is re-opening on monday 12/17 at 162 E 33rd St (between 3rd and Lex). The store had been boarded up for a few months now while it was under construction, but today as I walked by there was a waiter outside with an Apron on. I asked about the opening and he not only told me it was monday he took me inside to look around. They were having a test run with friends and family tonight so a lot of waiters and people were hanging out. It has a full bar and while there isn't as much seating as they had at their last location, it is all brand new and looks real nice.
I am looking forward to my first pastrami on monday
