NEW YORK (AP) — The famed Carnegie Deli in midtown Manhattan will remain closed for at least two more weeks after it was found to be diverting some of its gas before it reached the meter.

In late April, Con Edison discovered that the deli had been paying for only about half of the gas it used for more than five years.

The deli's owner, Marian Levine, was fined $2,600 for violating the city's building codes.

According to The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1J7E8eT ), her lawyer says the deli is in the process of paying the fine in order to obtain the permits to repair the gas line and reopen for business.

The deli is famous for its corned beef and pastrami sandwiches. It's located a few blocks from Carnegie Hall.
