Jeremy Umansky of Larder
Update: Larder officially opens to the public today. Check out the menu and some food porn below.
(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.
