Fine & Schapiro, the famed 93-year-old Kosher deli on West 72nd Street, closed last week with a sign on the door saying “closed for renovations until further notice,” We called the restaurant numerous times and got no answer. The deli was closed in May 2018 by order of the Board of Health. Sandi K. told us she “just ordered from Fine & Schapiro for the kids last Friday” and “got the best meal I ever got from them.” Since then we’ve heard all sorts of rumors but nothing firm. Thanks to Rolando for the tip and photos.
The former Tani Shoes at 131 West 72nd Street is becoming Satori Laser, a chain of laser hair removal businesses. Thanks to David for the tip.
