Cool salads on a summer afternoon: carrot and horseradish, sauerkraut with carrot, and beet ($5 per pound). Unadvertised, the beet was dosed with horseradish, too. The salads are prepared from German recipes, according to the Polish-born owner; they provide a link, at least in spirit, to the original owner of the German-style townhouse that Park Deli occupies today. "Delicatessen," above the awning, dates from the construction of the building, in 1931.
Park Deli, which was to close on Monday, July 31, has won a three-month reprieve, according to owner Krystyna Godawa. Reportedly, the deli had operated month-to-month, without a lease, since May, and the landlord had signed on a new tenant who would take occupancy on August 1. On Friday, Godawa confirmed that the deli can continue in business through the end of October while she looks for a new location in the neighborhood.
