On March 29, residents stood outside Nate ’n Al’s Delicatessen, a Beverly Hills landmark, after the restaurant announced that after 75 years, the doors to its Beverly Drive location would be closing permanently. The news was met with a rush of patrons calling in orders for what they believed was the last time. The Courier was at the landmark deli as a steady stream of people came to place orders in person, unable to call because the line was busy. Residents posed for photos and recorded videos in front of the door, recalling their fondest memories at the beloved staple. A long-time favorite of celebrities such as Larry King, many high-profile figures expressed surprise and sadness at news of the sudden closure. But, a clarification by Nate ‘n Al’s the next day assuaged the panic. While it is still unclear if and when the beloved deli will re-open at another location, social media postings indicated that the owners hope to keep the Nate ‘n Al’s tradition alive.
