Label’s Table is no longer operating in Pico-Robertson after a nearly half-a-century run, Eater LA first reported Tuesday. A quickly-penned note tacked to the entrance of the 46-year-old Jewish deli confirms the news with ownership citing a “family emergency.”

“Due to a family emergency, we regret that we must now close forever,” the note states. “We want to thank all of you for your continued support for 46 years. We will miss you. We love you.”

The closing of Label’s Table doesn’t come as a complete surprise, however, but certainly earlier than planned. Owner Bruce Krakoff in late-2020 announced the restaurant would close for good come January 31, 2021.

“After 46 years serving Los Angeles, Label’s Table Deli will be closing January 31, 2021,” an announcement in October stated. “It’s been a pleasure serving this community for almost five decades. We want to thank our customers from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us so sweetly for 46 years! With much gratitude, stay safe and healthy.
Thank you for everything!”

What Now Los Angeles (WNLA) reader Richard M. Crasnick reminisced about patronizing Label’s Table over the years in an email to WNLA Tuesday. “I remember as a senior at Hamilton High School [in 1977] going over to Label’s for $0.99 corned beef sandwich,” Crasnick wrote. “Just a great neighborhood spot that will be missed.” Crasnick’s brother, Michael, captured the note, shown below.
