Re “Junior's Deli to close at end of year,” Dec. 27
Junior's is closing? It's like taking away something from your childhood.
Junior's means more to me than a landmark in L.A.; it's filled with memories dating back two decades: my girlfriend picking up a birthday cake from the bakery; taking my dad from Brooklyn to dine in one of the booths; and even getting into an altercation with another patron over getting a table on a crowded Sunday morning.
The owners took a good business and ran it into the ground. The quality had slipped. Shelves in the bakery were empty or filled with tasteless treats. It seemed to me that the owners were not there to watch over the place or to check on the little things that mean so much.
