[UPDATED on 11/15/10: Please check out my video interview (below) with the owner of New York Deli, Leo Temory, on The Brigham Yen Show]
The former upscale Famima!! Japanese convenience store (that unfortunately closed down several months ago) in Old Pasadena has been replaced by soon-to-open New York Deli, which claims to be bringing “a slice of New York to Pasadena.”
Hopefully this will feel a niche (with high quality meats) in the growing Old Pasadena neighborhood for those who have longed to have a good ol’ fashion deli close by. The space looks like it just started construction, so my guess is it will be open by late spring/early summer.
