Does anyone remember the Crown High Deli in downtown New Haven?

It was on the corner of... Crown and High. And I don't know what sort of magic they used but their eggs (over easy, for me) and breakfast potatoes tasted like - amazingness. I mean, there's only so much you can do to a fried egg, but theirs were so good and, for some reason, savory and interesting-tasting. I can only guess that the griddle wasn't super-clean, and they made sausage and peppers at lunch or something, with the effect being like those Hong Kong restaurants you hear about with the 250-year old soup pot that's never been washed and makes everything taste like 250 years of good.

I used to go there every morning I possibly could for eggs and bacon and potatoes on a styrofoam plate. This was maybe 1993-95. And then they were gone.

Anyone remember the place, or know what happened to it?
