estauranteur Tony Foreman and chef Cindy Wolf announced some time ago their plans for a second restaurant at the Roland Park Shopping Center, anticipating a spring opening. Foreman and Wolf already own the center’s Petit Louis, as well as a number of other local favorites like the Charleston, Pazo, and Cinghiale. But during construction in the center’s old deli space, however, they found structural damage that halted their progress.
The English tudor-style center was built in 1896 as the country’s first planned shopping center. As a historic site, the demolition and build-out of the space must be approved by the Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP), the Civic League, and its Architectural Review Committee. The League stated that they have “already requested that the owner, tenant and architect make every effort possible to copy the form and appearance of the existing deli structure in their proposed plans.”
The former deli space will feature American cuisine and a wine list consisting of American and new world wines. They plan to have 100 seats in total, including 12 bar seats, and are aiming to hit the family-style demographic. If everything goes to plan, opening is now scheduled for this Summer.
