It is with great sadness that Jessica and I have to announce the closing of our deli, effective July 3rd, 2022. The economic metrics that we built our business model on no longer exist due to the pandemic and its lasting effects on our economy, costs and labor.
While Schmaltzy’s Delicatessen in its current form will be closing, we will be coming back after some months with a new Jewish concept and a different way of executing it that fits into how things are now.
These past 2.5 years have brought us laughter, tears, and things we couldn’t have even imagined. None of this was possible without the steadfast support, talent, and tenacity of our staff. Most of our staff, BOH especially, has been at the deli since day one making tasty jew food dreams come true. No one could have predicted this pandemic and we are so lucky to have gone through it with an incredible staff who showed up to work ready and willing to face the next pivot, day in and day out.
We will miss our stellar regular customers dearly, many of whom have turned into friends. We will miss our faithful customers from the East Coast who made us smile by always telling us we were ‘doing it wrong’ and our weekend warriors who came from near and far just to try our food on their days off. We want you to know your support in any form has been amazing and it has been a pleasure to serve you and cook for you.
A million thanks for all your support. There’s still a few more weeks to get your hands on your favorites, so please stop by so we can see your wonderful faces. You can also drop us a line at our email email@example.com, Jessica and I would love to hear from you.
Stay Schmaltzy Seattle.
Yours in Schmaltz,
Chef Jonny, Jessica, and the Schmaltzy’s Deli Team
