New owners for Schwartz’s Deli?

The ownership of smoked meat mecca Schwartz’s Deli, arguably the most popular restaurant in Montreal, could be changing hands, sources tell me.

Accountant Hy Diamond, who bought the restaurant in 1999, is apparently talking with prospective buyers. But a deal has yet to be reached for the sale of the restaurant, which has inspired a musical production and a book.

Opened in 1928 by Reuben Schwartz, the eatery remains immensely popular, with outside lineups a regular sight, even at a time of increased competition from newly opened smoked meat and burger places. According to a 2009 Maclean’s article, public outrage halted Diamond from opening a second location on Crescent St., downtown.

A representative for Diamond would neither confirm nor deny a sale, dismissing the possibility as ”just rumours.”
