Jeffrey’s Is Gone for Good


It’s been a bad week for New York bagel stores and other institutions, and now comes word that Jeffrey’s Meat Market will not reopen in the Essex Street Market, even though the butcher’s March shuttering was supposedly only temporary. Today Metropolis confirms that fourth-generation owner Jeffrey Ruhalter won’t be returning to the market (but he does hope to move it elsewhere). Meanwhile, we’re still holding out for the colorful butcher to land that TV deal! [Metropolis/WSJ]
