This was my "go to" local deli from 1988 when my office moved to Edison until Jack sold it in 2003.  It went downhill after that but it is still sad to see it close.  They had excellent jewish deli food and also creative and well prepared surprises outside the typical deli realm.  The Cooper family were wonderful and really ran a great place.
 
Someone needs to modify the listing under Roadfood restaurants to note that it has closed.

Sorry to hear they closed.

I went back in 2003, shortly after it was sold. It was "nothing special" and I hadn't been back since

Jack had a website that he was revealing some of his recipes bit by bit with some rather humerous side text. Come to think about it, the site and recipes vanished about 2003. Shame he doesn't publish a book like the daughter of Abe Lebewohl did now that the new owners have closed.
