As many Baltimoreans who have been trying to place phone calls on Monday would know, it is Passover eve. And many are taking off early to celebrate and to rid their homes of leavened bread for the next eight days.
Interestingly enough, Lenny’s Deli opened in Harborplace in the Pratt Street Pavilion last week, probably to capitalize on the crowd that can’t buy more bread right before the holiday, but still needs a sandwich fix. I bet lots of places have been getting pre-Passover business.
Owner Alan Smith and his father, Lenny Smith, opened the third location after recently celebrating the 25th anniversary of Lenny’s in Owings Mills. The 3,100-square foot space offers much of the corned beef and typical deli sandwich fare served at the other two locations.
So, if you’re not that excited for brisket or figuring out how to substitute matzah for a bowl of cereal, here’s a new alternative for your last leavened meal.
