Urban Deli Reopens Tomorrow in Federal Hill

| May 4, 2018 | 1 Comments

Urban Deli, which opened at 1448 Light St. in 2016, is reopening four blocks north at 1025 Light St. in Federal Hill tomorrow morning. Urban Deli’s new 1,000 sq. ft. space is at the former home of Wok & Roll which closed in 2017.

Urban Deli owner Laura McCormack told SouthBMore.com that a larger space was needed for her growing catering business. The new location has a dedicated kitchen for preparing food and catering orders. It also has 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 underwent a complete 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 Fells Point’s Latte’da 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 now extend its hours to 7pm 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 many of the offices in the areas and which typically 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 Uber Eats and GrubHub.

“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 any way during the move. I thought that was so cool and endearing.”

Tomorrow’s grand opening will have beer from Das Bier Haus and buy-one-get-one specials on menu items.
