Ben's Deli returns, and there's a new pop-up taco shop inside
Ben's Deli reopened this week on Avenue B between Second Street and Third Street, as EVG contributor Stacie Joy reports.
The family-owned market, here for the past 45 years, temporarily closed on April 19 as concerns over the COVID-19 outbreak grew.
For now, Ben's will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Meanwhile, visitors to Ben's will find a new pop-up vendor renting the deli counter...
Ruben Cardoso (above, left) and Enrique Jardines are behind the still-unnamed Mexican spot. (Jardine previously ran Boticarios on First Street.)
The two are serving Mexican street food for breakfast, lunch and dinner ... specializing in tacos and quesadillas. Salad bowls are also available. The hours for now are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
