These prices posted in the window of Jesse’s Deli, at Bond St. and Atlantic Ave., are a satirical jab at their landlord, who is jacking up the rent by two and a half times. Family owned and operated, the beloved Boerum Hill small business has been there more than 20 years. Some customers in advertising created the snarky signs to try to help. But deli staff said the store will have to move, hopefully nearby. They told The Villager they’ll resist the eviction and the ensuing legal action will extend their stay at least another six months.
