The story of the Second Avenue Deli is the story of a hard working immigrant and holocaust survivor) who began with nothing and through sheer strength of will and persistence, created a successful business now known far and wide.
After working as a ‘soda jerk’ and ‘counter boy’ Uncle Abe (Abe Lebewohl) was able to save a few thousand dollars to buy a small restaurant of his own in 1954. Through his devotion and attention to detail he built his restaurant into a place customers flocked to.
Today the Second Avenue Deli is owned by Abe’s nephews Joshua and Jeremy Lebewohl, who have proudly continued in their beloved uncle’s tradition.
A visit to this deli will not only satisfy your craving for a wonderful and authentic New York deli sandwich, but you will feel part of the special history of this special city.
