Baltimore’s Corned Beef Row will lose one of its famed delis after 5 p.m. Saturday when Lenny’s Delicatessen closes permanently after 26 years in East Baltimore.
The Baltimore Business Journal reported that the deli’s owner is transferring the lease to its building at 1150 East Lombard Street to the Helping Up Mission, a non-profit that helps homeless men.
The mission is renovating its own building nearby on East Baltimore Street and plans to use the deli’s kitchen and dining area while that work is underway, the business journal said.
The Lenny’s locations in Owings Mills and at the Horseshoe Casino on Russell Street will remain open, and Lenny’s catering operation on Lombard Street will move to Owings Mills, it added.
The Jewish Museum of Maryland owns the Lombard Street property that the mission is taking over. After this weekend, the only delis left on Corned Beef Row will be Attman’s and Weiss.
