It's been over two years since Lincoln Square's Delicatessen Meyer closed its doors and the building purchased by the Luszcz family of Gene's Sausage Shop fame. Chicago real Estate Daily reports that the Luszczes are finally ready to re-open Meyer as "Gene's Sausage Shop at Delicatessen Meyer" on November 7 (insert your "Jim's Mario's Restaurant" reference here).

The 7,000 square-foot space will carry over 40 varieties of sausage, ham and deli meats, prepared foods such as cabbage rolls, and wine, beer and liquor. Among the plans the Luszczes have for the new shop is rooftop seating come springtime.
