PLYMANIA Murray Hill: The New 2nd Ave. Deli

Are you familiar with the term PLYMANIA? If you answered in the positive you're ahead of the curve enough to have already buckled in.

Murray Hill: No, friends, your eyes do not deceive you. This is, indeed, the future home of the second 2nd Ave. Deli, at 162 East 33rd Street. Jack Lebewohl's son, Joshua, is said to be carrying the torch on the project. The only thing crazier than opening the Second Avenue deli on East Thirty Third Street?

Projected opening, per our last check in: 'about five months.' [PRE-PLYWOOD]
