| February 15, 2024 | 0 Comments

Popular Baltimore area-based bagel shop THB Bagelry & Deli held its grand opening today at McHenry Row in Locust Point. THB is occupying 2,700 sq. ft. of the 7,000 sq. ft. retail suite that was previously Iron Rooster. THB takes over the northern corner of the space that bookends the apartment building and shopping center.

THB, which was originally called Towson Hot Bagels after starting in Towson, now has locations in Towson, Canton, Charles Village, Columbia, Owings Mills, and Timonium.

THB is owned by the Scotto cousins Tony, Ciro, Orinana, and Gennaro from Southern Italy. They bought the original location in Towson in 2008.

“We are proud to open our doors in Locust Point, a neighborhood we have wanted to be a part of since we opened our Canton location in 2009,” said Tony Scotto, CEO of THB Bagelry & Deli, in a press release. “Many residents make weekly trips to our Canton location and order catering regularly, so this is a natural fit for us to bring the THB experience closer to them. We appreciate the unwavering support the community has shown, and we are especially thankful for 28 Walker and the Sapperstein family for the opportunity to join this great neighborhood.”

The menu at THB features fresh bagels, breakfast and deli bagel sandwiches, coffee, cream cheeses, omelets, paninis, soups, salads, and sides.

THB bagels are also featured in cafes around Baltimore such as Urban Deli and Order & Chaos Coffee.

In conjunction with its grand opening in Locust Point, THB launched a new collaboration with local spice conglomerate McCormick called the Asiago Tamarind Bagel. Tamarind & Pasilla Chile Seasoning is McCormick’s ‘2024 Flavor of the Year.’

THB of Locust Point will offer free coffee to guests all day, Monday to Friday through March 15th, for guests who purchase a THB-branded mug.

THB of Locust Point is open Monday to Friday from 6am to 330pm and Saturday and Sunday from 7am to 330pm.

The atmosphere inside THB “draws inspiration from the vibrant piazzas of Southern Italy.” The interior “exudes a bright and colorful ambiance, capturing the essence of the Scotto family’s hometown.”

The new shop was under construction for more than a year.

An outdoor patio will open this spring. The exterior also has dedicated pick-up window for delivery drivers.

Iron Rooster downsized its space in January of last year and closed in September. Construction is underway for a new restaurant to open in its space.
