New Owners Coming Soon for Michael's Deli, Ginza
New ownership coming to two Brookline restaurants, one expected to stay the same, the other a new style of Japanese cooking
Boston Restaurant Talk reports that Michael's Deli in Coolidge Corner has been sold. In an e-mail to the blog, the new owner Steven Peljovich, confimed that he has purchased the deli, and that the current owner Michael Sobelman, will stay on during a transitional period. The focus of the restaurant will stay the same, but with some new touches.
A while back, Michael's Deli hosted Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations."
BRT also reports that Ginza restaurant will be replaced by Gyu-Kaku, a Japan-based "yakiniku" restaurant--a style of cooking bite-sized pieces of meat on griddles or gridirons over charcoal or flame, according to Wikipedia--Gyu-Kaku's twist is that diners cook their own food.
The menu for their New York's East Village location includes a number of grilled items, as well as other items like edamame, kim-chee and salads. The menu also includes a dish called "Addicting Cabbage."
Yesterday, Coldwell Banker realtor Todd Glaskin tweeted his excitement on Twitter about working to lease the building to the Japanese chain.
Along with Otto Pizza expanding to an Allston location, and Cleveland Circle's Presto Pizza ending its 30-year run, there are a lot of changes coming in Boston's food landscape.
