Looks like change is coming to Baltimore’s Corned Beef Row
Baltimore’s Corned Beef Row appears to be losing a deli and gaining a larger museum.
The Jewish Museum of Maryland announced Wednesday that the museum and its parent organization, The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore, this week acquired Lenny’s Delicatessen at 1150 E. Lombard Street for $1.5 million so the museum can build a new wing and create additional visitor parking…..This is the second change announced this summer for Corned Beef Row, after the owners of Attman’s Deli disclosed that they were exploring plans to construct a new restaurant at 1101 E. Lombard St. to replace their current location at 1019 E. Lombard St.
It’s a real shame that Lenny’s sold out (though their location in the burbs is alive and kicking). Now Corned Beef Row is down to Attman’s only, though perhaps the move will beef up the area. Wait and see.
**** Correction. As informed by the comments below, I was wrong. Weiss Deli is still alive and kicking on Lombard. The corned beef is still in the slicer. Fear not Baltimore!****
