News broke on social last night that one of London's best known Jewish delis was about to close its doors for good. Harry Morgan first opened in St John's Wood way back in 1948, winning itself a reputation for its chicken soup, salt beef and more.
The iconic deli's troubles were revealed by Ben Lazarus on Twitter.
Harry Morgan in St John’s Wood has quite suddenly closed down. Ate lunch there on Sunday totally oblivious. Sad end to a fixture on the high street.— Ben Lazarus (@BLazarus1) April 26, 2021
There's no confirmation on what exactly has happened, but one report we spotted suggested that it was linked to a dispute over rent with the landlord.
Harry Morgan’s deli, established in 1948 and currently owned by Alex Chesterman (founder of @zoopla, @cazoo @lovefilm) in St Johns Wood, is shutting down tomorrow due to a rent dispute.— Nick Levine (@nicklevine) April 26, 2021
