A tough cut at Deli Zone

Sad news on the sandwich front. The Deli Zone franchise at 955 Lincoln, my favorite local sammie joint, has closed for "economic reasons," according to a handmade sign on the front door that was addressed to "loyal customers" (me).

I reviewed Deli Zone's Chrysler Building (pastrami, Swiss cheese and mustard on marble rye) in the September 25 edition of Our Weekly Bread. But I could have easily highlighted any one of a number of other great sandwiches, including its near-perfect meatball, the F-Train (grilled steak, mushrooms, onions, Provolone, lettuce, tomato, mayo and hot sauce) or the Rockefeller (turkey, pastrami, Swiss cheese, pickles, tomatoes and Dijonaisse).

Restaurants come and go in the troubled Beauvallon building, but I'd hoped that Deli Zone would stay put. Rod Feiner, a Brooklyn native and one of the founders and owners of the Deli Zone chain, which has eleven locations in the Denver and Boulder areas, says the franchisee there ran a great store, but simply couldn't make the place work financially. - Jonathan Shikes
