Reader: Bagels at Heidi's Brooklyn Deli are an insult to humanity
It's been a good run, but at the end of November Heidi's Brooklyn Deli will close its original spot in Highland. Brooklyn-to-Denver transplants Heidi and Steve Naples opened the place in the summer of 1997, and today a chain of franchised soup-and-sandwich Heidi's outlets stretch from California to Maine.
But some people won't miss the original.
- The original Heidi's Brooklyn Deli will close this month in Highland
- Tavern 13 reopening in former Heidi's space on South Broadway
- Venue Bistro closes in Highland
Heidi's was the worst run deli I've ever been to. The owners were clueless. The business succeeded because of a great location, not the quality of the product they put out. Their bagels were an insult to humanity. You could legally be shot in Brooklyn for serving a bagel that bad.
The space is way too big for an eyeglass store. I would love to see another deli go into the spot. One with an owner that cares about his business. A place that serves quality breakfast sandwiches would also be a welcome change.
What would you like to see go in the Heidi's spot? What does this part of Highland need?
