PLEASE NOTE: THE CELEBRATION HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO STREET CONSTRUCTION. WE WILL SHARE NEW DATE ONCE WE KNOW.
In 1960, a 17-year-old boy used his Bar Mitzvah money and opened up a small Kosher Deli on West 231st St with his father. 60 years later, the family will be celebrating this Saturday June 15th with a street renaming.
Popular Bronx deli, Loeser’s Deli, is celebrating 60 years on Saturday, June 15. To commemorate the milestone, the New York City Council voted unanimously to rename the intersection of West 231st and Godwin Terrace as “Loeser’s Deli Place.”
Owner Fredy Loeser and his family will host a community event alongside local politicians and dignitaries to celebrate their customers loyalty. Hebrew National, the official kosher hot dog of Loeser’s Deli for the last 60 years, will offer guests “The 60 Special” featuring Hebrew National hot dog topped with pastrami and mustard for just $1.
When: Starting at 11:30am
Where: Loeser’s Deli, 214 W 231st St. Bronx, NY 10463
Hebrew National Kosher Beef Franks have been on the menu at Loeser’s since the beginning. The brand is helping Loeser’s celebrate their long-standing partnership with a special Hebrew National dog featuring Hebrew National pastrami and mustard, available on June 15 for $1.
“I’ve truly lived the American dream and am incredibly grateful to all of my long-time customers. I couldn’t be prouder that I’ve been able to put my four children through school by selling kosher deli to the community that I love,” Freddy Loeser, founder and owner, Loeser’s Kosher Deli.
With money saved from his bar mitzvah, Freddy Loeser focused on running the business while his father did the cooking. At the time, the deli catered to the borough’s large Orthodox and observant Jewish population with traditional favorites such as pastrami, corned beef, kosher hot dogs, brisket and knishes. These authentic foods are still on the menu today with the deli’s customers reflecting the multiculturalism of New York.
