Rib­bon cut on new Lan­dolfi’s Deli

The Advance of Bucks County - - NEWTOWN AREA - By Jeff Werner

LANGHOoNE BOoOrGH – Eat­ing just got a whole lot bet­ter in Langhorne Bor­ough with the ar­rival of the Big Lou, the Si­na­tra, the Fluffy and the Philly. And that’s just for starters.

Lan­dolfi’s Deli of­fi­cially opened its doors on Fri­day at 116 North Belle­vue Av­enue, next to the Langhorne Ho­tel, with a rib­bon cut­ting at­tended by State oep. Frank Farry and Langhorne Bor­ough Coun­cil mem­bers Tony Marfia and hath­leen Hor­watt.

This is the sec­ond lo­ca­tion for the Lan­dolfi broth­ers, who al­ready op­er­ate a suc­cess­ful Ital­ian-style sand­wich shop on South Main Street in vard­ley Bor­ough where cus­tomers have en­joyed the deli’s spe­cial brand of spe­cialty sand­wiches, cold cuts and party trays for years.

“We want to continue here in Langhorne what we started in vard­ley,” said Eric Lan­dolfi. “Langhorne is a small town like vard­ley so I think we’re a good fit. vou need some­thing like this – a neigh­bor­hood deli – in a small town. We’re lo­cal and we hope to be here for many years,” he said.

In ad­di­tion to cold cuts and cheeses, the deli’s menu is chock full of mouth-wa­ter­ing spe­cialty sand­wiches, deli wraps, panini sand­wiches, hoa­gies and sal­ads – all made to or­der fol­low­ing the deli’s motto, “Our Have Weight.”

“This is a great ad­di­tion to the bor­ough, plus these guys make sand­wiches that are off the hook,” said oich Beaumont of oEO­com­plete oeal Es­tate, who owns the build­ing where the deli is lo­cated. “It’s go­ing to be some­thing we’re go­ing to have here for a long time to come.”

The open­ing of the new deli, at about 800 square feet, rep­re­sents re­birth for the twos­tory build­ing that just one

Sand­wiches year ago was in de­te­ri­o­rat­ing shape and nearly va­cant.

Over the past year, Beaumont has over­seen the ren­o­va­tion of the build­ing. Its sec­ond floor is now fully oc­cu­pied by busi­nesses, the deli has taken one of two first floor spa­ces and he’s work­ing on find­ing a ten­ant for the sec­ond.

“It shows that great things can be ac­com­plished, even in a bad econ­omy, when busi­nesses, the lo­cal gov­ern­ment, res­i­dents and busi­ness part- ners (in this case for the First Na­tional Bank), work to­gether,” said Beaumont.

State oep. Farry com­mended Beaumont for the pur­chase of the build­ing and re­vi­tal­iz­ing the struc­ture. He also per­son­ally wel­comed Lan­dolfi’s to town.

“Small busi­nesses like this are what drive the Amer­i­can econ­omy,” said Farry. “It’s also good to have busi­nesses in town that aren’t just of­fices, that add va­ri­ety to the town .. I hope we can continue to help our community here thrive.”

Coun­cil­woman hathy Hor­watt also praised Beaumont for his ef­forts and said she’s “ec­static that oich has taken over the build­ing and re­ally im­proved it.”

Hor­watt said Lan­dolfi’s and an­other new ad­di­tion to the town’s busi­ness community, Sara’s Home­made Sweets, fit in well with the town’s ef­fort to en­cour­age busi­nesses that pro­mote foot traf­fic in town.
