WORCESTER – Weintraub’s Jewish Delicatessen, the 99-year-old Water Street landmark and the city’s last remaining Jewish deli, will close next month, with plans to be succeeded by a French crepe café.
“We were a little reluctant to go away from the Jewish deli, but we’ve exhausted all efforts (to save it),” Edward Murphy, the building’s owner, said Monday.
Mr. Murphy bought the 126 Water St. property last summer and made it known he was looking for a serious candidate to take over the deli, which had fallen on hard times.
The once-thriving eatery – part of a string of Jewish businesses that populated Water Street in the mid-20th century - lost customers over the years as the neighborhood diversified, and had struggled with health code violations in recent years.
