Big Change Could Be In The Works For Uptown Deli


  UPDATED (Aug. 19 at 3:15 p.m.) A sign on the front door of Uptown Deli (7905 Norfolk Ave.) claims the "New York Jewish" style eatery is closed for a month of renovations, but a former employee said new ownership is closing it for good and changing it to an Indian restaurant. The tipster said the original owner, who in November 2010 opened what was then the only restaurant of its kind in Bethesda, sold Uptown last October because he "didn't want to sink more money into the operation." In March 2011, Uptown held a grand opening ceremony, complete with proclamations from County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) and County Councilman Roger Berliner (D-Potomac-Bethesda). Bubby's, another Jewish style deli, opened around the corner at 4866 Cordell Ave in February 2011. It was short-lived, closing for good just six months later. UPDATE: Uptown Deli is out on Norfolk Avenue. Bethesda Magazine's Carole Sugarman reported Friday that nearby Haandi, the longtime Indian restaurant at 4904 Fairmont Ave., is moving into the space. Haandi's last day in its current location will be Aug. 31, said co-owner Madan Sundriyal. Its current building will soon be redeveloped into a 17-story apartment with ground-floor retail. Sundriyal said he hopes to reopen in the new location in three months.
