HomeSlyce Reopens in South Baltimore

| May 2, 2022 | 0 Comments

HomeSlyce opened last month at its new “Federal Hill location” at the 2 East Wells apartment building in South Baltmore. HomeSlyce was previously open at 1741 Light St. for nine years, but closed for dine-in service this past year while navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and transitioning to its new location less than two blocks south.

HomeSlyce reopened on April 16th which was the 10-year anniversary of opening its location on Light St. HomeSlyce started in South Baltimore, but now has six locations. It has three other locations in Baltimore City, one in Columbia, and one in Washington, D.C.

HomeSlyce went from 2,500 sq. ft. of space on Light St. to 2,000 sq. ft. of space at 2 East Wells. HomeSlyce co-owner Haluk Kantar told the former building needed a lot of upgrades and the new space is more modern. He is excited to be a little closer to the boom of new residential around Wells St.

The new space was last home to Baltimore Soup Company before it closed in 2018.

HomeSlyce changed up its theme a bit at the new location. It no longer has bar, but does have a self-service draft wall with 16 beers. It will soon add wines and mixed drinks to the draft lineup. Customers can order beer by the ounce.

While the new location no longer has a bar or bartenders, it does have a communal table. HomeSlyce co-owner Dogan Salis noted the change in concept was due to the labor shortage.

“We received some good feedback, but some people really want a bar,” said Salis. “We are crossing our fingers and hopeful people will get used to it. People can try a lot of different types of beer from the draft wall.”

Salis noted HomeSlyce has been “really busy” since reopening. “We are super excited to be open and running again,” he added.

The food menu will remain the same with HomeSlyce’s gourmet pizzas, Slyces, calzones, wings, sandwiches, salads, appetizers, and desserts. Specials will include 8-inch pizzas every day for lunch and 10-inch pizzas for $12 on Wednesdays.

HomeSlyce still offers its own delivery services.

There are customer parking spaces in the garage at 2 East Wells.

HomeSlyce is open Sunday to Thursday from 11am to 10pm and Friday and Saturday from 11am to 11pm.

This new HomeSlyce location will soon be turned over to two local franchise owners.
