Misha's RIP

Cap Hill | | Nov 30, 2000 11:40 PM

Just a note in remembrance of Misha's Deli which closed up shop this last Sunday. I loved being able to get fresh Russian/Jewish foods and I loved having a place in town whose motto was "A Knish is Just a Knish." I typically would go buy "Pick" Hungarian Salami (where will I get it now??) and grab whatever homemade item looked good. When I had the flu last year I dragged myself out of bed to get his vegetable soup.

In particular I spent about 30 minutes this 4th of July talking with Misha about what it was like being in Russia in the 60s/70s and how grateful he was to be an American and I can only say that I'm sorry sorry sorry that I and the rest of the Hill weren't better patrons. The closing sign was typical of his humor. "No More Soup For You!" Our loss. Best wishes to Misha!
