Wurst case scenario: Deli deal sours

Restaurateur Mel Glickstein says he won't do that deli in Bala Cynwyd after all.

Wurst case scenario: Deli deal sours


Mel Glickstein, who's owned Mel's Italian in Bala Cynwyd for 23 years, says he's pulled the plug on Benny's, a deli he was planning at 145 Montgomery Ave.

Glickstein says the deal, for which he and the building owner had a verbal agreement, was too expensive when pen went to paper.

So the Lower Merion deli war will continue between the nearby Murray's and Hymie's.
