After two years, Drew's Deli has closed and its space on Lincoln Street is for lease...again. Brothers Andrew and David Marx opened their deli in the home of the original Spicy Pickle in the fall of 2012; Andrew already had experience in the sandwich business at Jimmy & Drew's in Boulder, which earned accolades from Esquire after opening in 2006. But Jimmy & Drew's is gone (its former address now belongs to Thai Kitchen), and now Drew's Deli has shuttered, too. See also: The Marx brothers are coming to Lincoln Street with Drew's Deli "We can't wait to open up and get to know our neighbors," David Marx had said two years ago, when Drew's Deli had just finished jumping through all the permitting hoops. "This is a great location and we have a killer menu that we're really excited about."
But all that's left of Drew's Deli now is a goodbye note from the brothers to their customers on the door of the closed shop: "We have great memories!"
