Curtain Falls on Stage Deli

The Stage in its glory!
For 75 years it was the place to be and the place to be seen.

The Stage Delicatessen, in Manhattan's theater district, was a favorite of the theater crowd since 1937. The place was famous for their overstuffed sandwiches named after celebrities.  No more, the place has closed down.

 I have been to several Broadway shows, but I never made it to the Stage.

An increase in rent is said to be the reason for the closure.
The place was special, catering to tourists and the theater folk. Their prices weren't cheap, but this was not your "normal" restaurant.   I have a picture of a portion of the Stage's menu.  Click the image to enlarge.

You know, they say that the world is ending in three weeks - it isn't.
Little by little, it's been ending for years.
