Gone dark: Kaufman's Deli and Hungry Bear Cafe

Kaufman's Deli on 19th Street, buttoned up on Feb. 29.

Two establishments seem to have gone dark.

Change the lox. The phone is disconnected at Kaufman's Deli at 38 S. 19th St. in Rittenhouse, which succeeded a branch of Famous 4th Street Deli in late 2014. The front door bears a sign reading "closed for private party." Co-owner Rich Kaufman said it was closed in the short term while he tries to work out a deal with both his landlord and another restaurateur.

Bear left? Hungry Bear Cafe's reincarnation at the Centennial House in Fairmount Park appears to have been short-lived. Derek Cantwell, who relocated his BYOB from cozy quarters at the old Fort Washington train station to the more spacious Ohio House last October, did not reply to messages for comment. 

Will update with additional information.
