Ben's may stay after all

Representatives from Ben’s Deli and its Forest Hills−based landlord said they have resumed negotiations to allow the popular eatery to remain at its current Bay Terrace Shopping Center locale after a deal fell through last month.

Scott Singer, president of Ben’s Deli Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant, and Mary Hughes, vice president of leasing for Cord Meyer Development LLC, both said they were “hopeful” that a new deal could be struck between the deli and the Flushing landlord.

In November, the two had criticized each other after talks to build a new Ben’s Deli at Bay Terrace collapsed following six months of negotiating.

Maybe if BEN'S gets a break from the CM they could lower the outragious prices for their customers - sic.

Oh that won't will it!

CM is back at the table because they realize they aren't gonna get the rents they think they are gonna get with the way the economy is. So don't think they are trying to be nice about the situtation. It's just a turn around in business. Better to get $omething than nothing...

I've got nothing against Ben's Deli but I say get rid of it. Bay Terrace needs a good bakery. Since Cake Box shut down, they could really use one.

Strangely enough, Ben's is not kosher enough for most local Orthodox Jews.

Er, Cake Box was closed for health violations. You want a bakery like THAT?
