Abe Fisher was born in 1915 on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Over a lifetime that lasted nearly a century, Abe lived many adventures, from Whiskey bootlegger to Cadillac dealer. But no matter how far he roamed, his heart (and his appetite) always returned to the steamy delis, bialy bakers, pickle pushers and knish carts of his childhood.
Abe was rarely seen without a crisply tailored suit and proper fedora. And despite a steady diet of gribenes, chopped liver and kishke, his waistline remained unchanged from when he was a teenager. Abe attributed his good health and longevity to a glass of pickle juice every morning and a martini and cigar every night before bed. He is survived by this restaurant.
