(Original story 4/24/2018): It’s been two years since Jeremy Umansky announced his plans for Schmaltz Delicatessen and Bakery, a from-scratch Eastern European deli that will rely heavily on techniques like koji culturing, fermentation and foraging. Since that announcement, the name has changed to Larder, Umansky has found a location in Ohio City, and that location has been steadily transformed into a deli with an Old World aesthetic.

When it opens at 10 a.m. on April 24, the “kosher-style” deli will server soups, sandwiches, beef-based charcuterie, house-baked breads and assorted pickles and ferments. The chef is joined in the project by wife Allie La Valle-Umansky, a pastry chef, and chef de cuisine Kenneth Scott.

Going forward, Larder will be open Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
