Carnegie Deli Reopens After 10 Month Closure

Carnegie Deli reopened its doors Tuesday after the historic eatery shuttered for 10 months because of an illegal gas hook-up.

"We are happy to serve our loyal patrons our gargantuan sandwiches and creamy cheesecake once again. We hope to see you soon," a statement on the restaurant's website read.

Carnegie Deli shuttered in April after Con Edison discovered "theft of service conditions" at the iconic eatery.

The deli is known as a Manhattan institution that has been serving over-sized pastrami sandwiches to tourists and others from its midtown location since 1937. It has also made numerous pop culture cameos. For instance, scenes in Woody Allen's "Broadway Danny Rose" were shot there.

The reopening was welcome news to many fans who posted on the company's Facebook page Tuesday morning.

"We are over the moon that our doors have officially reopened! We look forward to welcoming back our family of employees, friends, and loyal patrons," the deli announced on Facebook.

"Congrats on the re-opening!!! Can't wait to indulge !!" Facebook user Steven Garnett replied.

"Can't wait to have another pastrami sandwich!!!!!" Facebook user Marcheta Morrow Fitzsimmons wrote.
