Popular Marina del Rey Deli Temporarily Closes

Despite outdoor dining expected to resume this week, a popular Marina del Rey deli frequented by the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Leonardo DiCaprio and Shaquille O’Neal has announced it is closing for the time being. Jerry’s Patio Cafe & Bar in Marina del Rey–the offshoot of Jerry’s Famous Deli–posted a notice on their website announcing the closure: “This is only goodbye for now, as we shutter the doors to Jerry’s Patio Cafe & Bar. We endeavor to regroup and return to serve all of you, our loyal customers, again. Meanwhile, from all of us at Jerry’s and our affiliates, we thank you for your support over the past 42 years and look forward to sharing many more happy moments with you in the future.
