A Restaurateur who started his career as a dishwasher at the famed Carnegie Deli is doubling his offer to buy the doomed institution to $10 million.
Carnegie Deli owner Marian Harper Levine, 65, announced in September that she planned to shutter the iconic pastrami palace on Dec. 31.
Sammy Musovic, whose first job after emigrating from then-Yugoslavia 30 years ago was washing dishes for $3 an hour at Carnegie, now owns uptown Manhattan restaurants Sojourn, Vero and Selena Rosa.
He was so devastated by the closure news, he offered $5 million to buy the deli, which was rejected by the Levine family. Now he is doubling the offer.
Musovic told Page Six, “It was an honor to wash dishes at the Carnegie Deli — it inspired me to stay in the food business, and now I own three restaurants.
