Urban Deli Relocating to the Former Wok & Roll in Federal Hill

| January 30, 2018 | 0 Comments

Urban Deli, which opened at 1448 Light St. in 2016, is relocating four blocks north to 1025 Light St. in Federal Hill. Urban Deli’s new 1,000 sq. ft. space is at the former home of Wok & Roll, which closed in 2017. Urban Deli is currently closed until it reopens at its new location around March 1st.

Urban Deli owner Laura McCormack told SouthBMore.com that a larger space was needed for her growing catering business. The new location will have a dedicated kitchen for preparing food and catering orders. It will also have bar seating similar to the first location, a larger coffee bar with a broader selection of Zeke’s Coffee, and outdoor seating.

“It’s a bigger and brighter location with the same products,” said McCormack.

Urban Deli will continue its color scheme of gray, yellow, and ivory. The new space is currently under renovation.

Urban Deli sells THB Bagels; breakfast sandwiches, paninis and sandwiches on breads from Bakery de France; wraps; soups; salads; and baked goods. It also offers a large selection of drinks and Zeke’s coffee. Urban Deli won SouthBMore’s Best Sandwiches in 2016.

Urban Deli will continue to open every day for breakfast and lunch beginning at 7am, but will extend its hours to 8pm or 9pm to also offer dinner.

McCormack is hoping to serve a bigger lunch crowd at its new location in the heart of the Federal Hill business district, which is closer to offices in the areas and has more foot traffic. She also hopes to offer curbside service for orders that call ahead to tackle the parking difficulties in Federal Hill.

Urban Deli will continue to offer delivery through uberEats and GrubHub.

Most of the team at Urban Deli will be making the move to the new location.

“We’ve received a lot of community support, and that makes me feel really good,” said McCormack, “A few people in the community have asked if they could help us in the move in any way. I thought that was so cool and so endearing.”

McCormack is planning a grand opening to thank the customers who have supported Urban Deli during the transition.
