NEW YORK, N.Y. – New York City’s iconic Carnegie Deli is closing at the end of the year.
Spokeswoman Cristyne Nicholas says the family who owns the Manhattan eatery wants to license the Carnegie Deli brand and sell the products for wholesale distribution.
WABC-TV (http://7ny.tv/2dgzVt8 ) reports that the owner will license Carnegie Deli restaurants in other cities and hopes the flagship location can reopen sometime under a similar arrangement.
The popular tourist destination is a few blocks from Carnegie Hall and is known for its massive pastrami sandwiches and pop culture cameos. Scenes from Woody Allen’s “Broadway Danny Rose” were shot there.
