Chodorow May Bring Borscht Belt to NYC with Kutsher's Deli

It's been way too long—four months, at least—since the opening of the last Jeffrey Chodorow restaurant. So we're happy to hear there may be another on the books.

The Post reports today that the restaurateur is teaming up with the Kutsher family of the Catskills to open Kutsher Deli in Tribeca. For those unfamiliar, the Kutshers own the over 100 year-old The New Kutsher's Resort & Spa (formerly Kutsher's Hotel), one of the last kosher resort hotel in the Catskills Mountains, which was once a haven for sports stars and comedians and served as inspiration for Dirty Dancing. It's a fading institution with many admirers, so there are a lot of upsides to bringing a piece of it to the city. We await details from the Chodorow camp, but perhaps it will be Jewish delicatessen.

Also in the Post: hotelier and nightclub impresario Sam Nazarian has found a space for his 120 room SLS hotel. It will be housed at 140 6th Ave./72 Sullivan St., the site of a former gas station, just four blocks from the newly opened James Hotel.
