Izenberg’s Deli is taking over the landmark 401 Fayette Street location that has been Pudge’s since July of 2014. Izenberg’s will be expanding its name to reflect the move and will now be known as Izenberg’s Catering and Cafe (it will include a deli, catering, bakery and restaurant).
Julia and Fred Izenberg have operated a similar operation at a few different locations over the years, most notably in Lafayette Hill from September 1995 to November 2008. There were also locations in Ardmore from about 2004 to 2007 and King of Prussia from 2004 to 2010. Since May of 2010 they have operated the location on Butler Pike in Conshohocken.
The all-new Izenberg’s is expected to open in about a week. It will be open seven-days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Bill Danitz, of the original 401 Diner fame, will continue to oversee breakfast (as he has at Pudge’s since late February of 2016).
Pudge’s isn’t going away. It will still have its location in Blue Bell.
Here are the statements from Pudge’s and Izenberg’s:
Dear friends, family and neighbors of Pudge’s Conshohocken,
We want to thank all of you for three great years!
