How Larder Delicatessen changed the Cleveland food scene: NorthEATS Ohio

Larder opened its doors in 2018 and is a semi finalist for a James Beard award.

CLEVELAND — Larder Delicatessen hasn't even been open for two full years, but it has already become a neighborhood staple. 

Located in the Ohio City Firehouse #2 on W 29th Street, they are breathing new life into an old building. 

And just like their long-standing structure, they do things the old-school way. 

Known for their soups, pastries and cured meats, everything they serve is created in house and by hand. 

Chef and Co-Owner Jeremy Umansky says it's that care and attention that elevates the food.

"We make everything from scratch," says Umansky. "We have complete control with how we want the texture to come out, how we want the flavor to come out. It's one of the things we are most proud of." 

Larder opened in 2018 and has already become a crowd favorite. "You're not going to go wrong with anything here. It's one of the best lunch spots in the whole city," says customer Thomas Fox. 

The crown jewel of the lunch menu: Pastrami sandwich. 

Like everything at Larder, the pastrami is seasoned and cooked in house. It is then sliced thick and placed on rye bread, smothered in mustard and topped with red cabbage sauerkraut. 

Other stars of the menu include their chicken sandwich, matzo ball soup and homemade root beer. 

Larder is located at 1455 W 29th Street in Cleveland. For more follow Larder on their Instagram or head to their website LarderDB.com.
