Harry's Deli just can't catch a break. First, it was closed longer than expected due to a schedule-busting remodel; now, after just six and a half months, it's closed again, this time due to fire damage.
Harry Kho posted to Facebook late last night that a fire started in the deli's soiled laundry basket around 1 a.m. It was noticed quickly by an Irvine police officer who was patrolling Sky Park and smelled smoke and quickly knocked down by OC Fire, but there's smoke and soot damage throughout the restaurant.
No word on a reopening date because the damage is still being assessed. We'll let the hungry denizens of Irvine and the world know as soon as those awesome sandwiches return.
