The third incarnation of the famed Second Avenue Deli is moving to First Avenue.

A little over a year after reopening on East 33rd Street — the original Second Avenue restaurant was shuttered in 2006 — the Second Avenue Deli is opening a second location, and it’s not on its namesake avenue.

The new restaurant is slated to open this fall on First Avenue at 75th Street.

Though the Upper East Side is a far cry from the deli’s original East Village location, the heart-warming and stomach-filling intentions remain the same. “It’s more than just the business,” restaurateur Jeremy Lebewohl told The New York Times. “The first restaurant was a tribute and the second one too.”

Lebewohl, who is heir to uncle Abe Lebewohl’s deli throne, made no mention of the potential for a pastrami den on Second Avenue. But come 2013, the subway stop nearest to the Upper East Side location could be on the Second Avenue line.
