WORCESTER – Dariush “David” Mizrahi wishes he could say that business at the city’s only kosher deli spiked this week for Hanukkah.
“No,” the ungregarious proprietor of Weintraub’s replied when asked the question Friday as he sliced up some tender corned beef.
The 61-year-old, who announced a retirement in July but reversed course in August, said business, already tough, has declined since summer.
“I want people to know that we didn’t close down,” he said, although the long-term fate of the 98-year-old deli appears uncertain.
Local developer Ed Murphy, who bought the building in August for $360,000, told the T&G that although he’s still open to another operator continuing the deli, he’s exploring other options.
“We’re actively entertaining other offers,” said Mr. Murphy, who owns several properties in the area.
