Last day for Houston Deli & Grocery

As I first reported last month, Brooklyn's Union Market will open a fancy new shop on Avenue A and Houston that will include a beef-aging facility and personal shopping services...


Meanwhile, the current tenant at 240 E. Houston St., Houston Deli & Grocery, closes today...


I stopped by during the weekend. I asked about the closing date. The owner, shaking his head and fighting back tears, said several times, "They wouldn't offer us a lease..."

Not much left...

I really liked these guys. The last time I talked to them, they said they were looking for a new location, but it didn't sound very promising.

Sad to see someone forced out like that, I hope they can find a new space.

Great sandwiches can still be had over at Gracefully down the block. Let's hope the carpetbaggers from Brooklyn don't vanquish the few longtime neighborhood businesses left on Ave A.
