STUDIO CITY, CA — The beloved Jerry's Deli in Studio City announced Friday will be their last day in business. The store said they will be closing their store as a result of the coronavirus pandemic that has decimated businesses across Los Angeles.

Established in 1978, celebrities such as Adam Sandler and Will Smith frequented the restaurant in its heyday. Comedian Andy Kaufman even went undercover as a busboy during his TV show Taxi, always denying he was the famous actor despite customers pointing him out.

"To say 2020 has been a year of uncertainty would be an understatement," the deli wrote on Instagram. "The world as we knew it has changed and is still changing. We have loved being a source of comfort [food] during these hard times but we, unfortunately, have not been immune to the severity of the current climate."

The store has lost several locations in recent years. The Woodland Hills location closed in 2016 after 43 years in business, while the West Hollywood spot closed on May 19.

The store hopes to reopen the Studio City location at some point once the pandemic has ended.
