After serving Denver for 35 years, the family-owned Zaidy’s Deli in Cherry Creek is closing its doors indefinitely.

Zaidy’s Deli has been Denver’s go-to restaurant for Jewish comfort foods since it opened near the State Capitol in 1985. The deli moved to its current location at 121 Adams St. in 1992.

The deli’s owners Gerard and Jason Rudofsky announced the closure Wednesday.

“The appreciation we have for the opportunity to serve our family recipes and favorite foods while watching this city flourish right outside our window, is only surpassed by our immense gratitude for you,” the Rudofskys wrote on their website.

“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.”

Zaidy’s Deli had a second location downtown at 15th and Lawrence streets for several years before it also closed in 2009.

The Rudofskys said they hope to one day be able to share the deli’s legacy and traditions with the next generation.

Announcements of Zaidy’s Deli’s future endeavors will be available on their Instagram account @ZAIDYSDELI and by contacting [email protected].
