The teaser banners are up. Katz’s Deli will open its first satellite outpost in Brooklyn in just a few short months. The signage hanging at the future DeKalb Market Hall touts a spring 2017 launch.

Their involvement in the 60,000 square-foot DeKalb project had been rumored for some time before owner Jake Dell confirmed the news in October 2015. It was a watershed moment, as this is the first ever expansion for the delicatessen, which opened on Ludlow Street in 1888.

Katz’s Deli, like the other participant vendors, are held hostage by hiccups in the Dekalb Market Hall. The foodie emporium was initially scheduled to open in Brooklyn’s City Point development in November 2016, but since delayed until next spring.

Other vendors include Guss’ Pickles, Forcella, Ample Hills Creamery, Lioni Italian Heroes, and Fletcher’s Brooklyn Barbecue.
