Uptown Deli Closes; Haandi To Take Over Space
New York-style deli closed Aug. 14, Bethesda Magazine's Table Talk blog reports.
Haandi will close its Fairmont Avenue location Aug. 31 ahead of the groundbreaking of a 17-story high-rise that will have 236 rental units, 6500-square-feet of ground floor retail, and more than three levels of below grade parking.
Haandi co-owner Madan Sundriyal told Table Talk that Uptown Deli closed Aug. 14. The much-anticipated deli opened in 2010, but “deli maven” Howard Wasserman resigned in February after the eatery was sold to a new owner in October of 2011.
Now, it looks like the Uptown has closed its doors for good. Operators of Haandi, a fixture in the downtown Bethesda dining scene, will renovate the Uptown space to provide an “upscale” dining experience and expand their menu, Table Talk reports.
