Toronto’s Ben & Izzy’s Deli Closed for Good

Earlier this summer, Ben & Izzy’s, one of Toronto’s kosher delis, announced that they were closing for the summer – which seemed like a normal thing for some businesses to do. 

However, Ben & Izzy’s confirmed with YeahThatsKosher on Friday via Twitter that they will not be reopening and that they are closed for good. 

This is disheartening considering how new the restaurant was and how well liked it was by the community. I had the opportunity to try Ben & Izzy’s this past January and it was quite good and rivaled some NY delis.
