Back in October of 2017, Jerry’s Deli closed down their massive operation in Marina Del Rey for an overhaul. At the time, Eater reported that they would not open under the same name. Well, after an extensive redo of the commodious space and grounds, a new name has appeared on the corner sign of Mindanao and Marina Expressway. Probably derived from the company CEO’s family name of Starkman, it appears the new name will be Stark’s. We wish them the best of luck.
Years ago, if you went to a movie in Westwood (yes, people used to do that), chances are you stopped by Jerry’s Deli beforehand. Unfortunately, Jerry’s went extinct in Westwood three years ago and the iconic, cavernous space at 10925 Weyburn Ave. has sat empty ever since. I’ve been watching to see who would finally take down the decrepid for lease sign and breathe new life into an old classic. Well, signs did come down recently, and sadly, according to the notice of public hearing posted on the front, the old Jerry’s will be a future “financial service center”.
