Sarge’s Delicatessen in Murray Hill was very nearly destroyed this time last year in a three-alarm fire that took 150 firefighters around 90 minutes to get under control. But after a months-long rebuilding process, not to mention some red tape, it looks like the neighborhood institution is about to reopen. Over the summer, owner Andrew Wengrover told Eater that the post-renovations deli would be “the same as it always was.” We’re thankful for that. [Earlier]
