A mainstay for matzo ball soup, Reuben sandwiches and more Jewish comfort foods has closed in Cherry Creek after nearly three decades serving the community.

Zaidy’s Deli family owners Gerard and Jason Rudofsky announced on Wednesday that their Cherry Creek deli “is closing its doors indefinitely.” The restaurant opened in 1992 at First Avenue and Adams Street. A second, downtown location of Zaidy’s closed just over a decade ago.

“It’s with a heavy heart that we’ve made the decision to stop compromising the integrity and quality of our renowned Jewish comfort food in order to stay open, no matter how much we wish we could,” the Rudofskys wrote on their website.

“We’ve hosted many life-cycle events,” the post continued, “your son’s Bris, your daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, and we’ve celebrated love by catering your weddings. We’ve remembered and mourned those you’ve lost and provided sustenance for your Shiva. And we’ve loved every moment.”

But they also hinted at a future for their business. “Although this is goodbye, for now, we hope to someday share the legacy and traditions of Zaidy’s Deli with the next generation,” the post read.

Zaidy’s Deli is just the latest in a string of restaurant closures this year, including more than a few decades-old businesses. Many of them say they have closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The owners’ complete letter to customers is copied below.
