New York's very own local restaurant, Carnegie Deli first opened its doors to the public way back 1937. Their dish and style of food has always been known all over the United States, some food critics say their pastrami is so good it sometimes being labeled as "orgasmic."

According to New York Post, the iconic home to gigantic Jewish style sandwiches particularly the 4 inch high, pastrami,corned beef and chopped liver special that they serve, will now be closing its doors to the public permanently on New Year's Day. Marian Harper the restaurant manager of Carnegie Deli stunned both pastrami lovers around the world, New Yorkers and her employees as she announced the sad news on Friday morning.

"At this stage of my life, the untimely mornings to late nights have taken a huge toll, along with my sleepless nights and exhausting hours that come with operating a restaurant business. I'm very sad to close the Carnegie Deli but i have reached the time of my life when I need to take a step back." Harper said according to Food and Wine.

Meanwhile reports from New York Daily News points out that a former Carnegie Deli dishwasher says that he is working out a deal with Harper. Samuel Musovic, the former deli dishwasher said he wanted to save the iconic eatery from closing forever by making an agreement to raise $5 million from pastrami lovers around the country and also with the help of group investors who want to be a part of the business.

Indeed the original location of the famous pastrami restaurant will be closing forever but the brand will surely be going strong as franchises spread in different parts of the country and overseas like Vegas and Bethlehem. With the restaurant closing another opportunity opens as Carnegie Deli's legacy will live on by focusing more on licensing the brand and selling their famous recipe/products all over the country and overseas.

Though it will still be carried on through franchising, there is no better home for the restaurant than in New York City, where it all began. For more of the latest news and current events stay tuned to Travelers Today.
