A Chicago style Jewish-run deli in San Francisco with the memorable name - Moishe's Pippic - closed for good on Monday after 26 years in business and on the fifth day of Hanukkah.
A passerby who tweets with the handle @rotron snapped a photo of the closure sign at 425A Hayes Street in Hayes Valley, HayesWire first reported. (Pippic means bellybutton in Yiddish.)
"We all would like to thank you so much for your patronage and your loyalty," the sign read. "It is hard to say goodbye and we will miss you all."
The restaurant, owned by Joe Sattler, was best know for its Sears Tower (roast beef, turkey and kosher salami on a French roll) and Evanston Special (chopped liver and turkey on rye) sandwiches, and of course, its matzo ball soup, according to the J Weekly.
There was no word on why the restaurant, which boats bagels and lox and Vienna beef closed its doors. No one answered the phone on Monday.

I wonder if between all of us we could get enough bitcoin together to resurrect Moishe’s Pippic.

A sad day for the Jews (and gentiles) of San Francisco, as Moishe's Pippic closes its doors.
