Uptown Deli, the New York-style delicatessen at 7905 Norfolk Ave. in Bethesda that was supposed to open in July, then August, is still waiting to receive its use and occupancy permit from Montgomery County. So no brisket this Rosh Hashanah. “Sorry we missed the holiday,” says general manager Howard Wasserman. “What can we do?”

In the meantime, Wasserman is happy to respond to questions about the deli, the food, or whatever. E-mail him at howardw@uptowndelibethesda.com.
