A-Deli coming to old Pound Coffee Space in NoMa

From a NoMa BID press release:

“A-Deli Italian Food shop has signed a lease in NoMa, bringing delicious Italian hoagies and sandwiches to this rapidly growing neighborhood. A-Deli plans on opening this fall at 1300 Second Street, NE, across from the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel and the New York Avenue Metro Station.

A-Deli, which currently operates a location in Herndon, will offer breakfast and lunch featuring an Italian-American menu, offering diverse options such as lasagna, meatball and cheese sandwiches, Italian hoagies, and cheese steaks. The deli focuses on fresh, hot items and makes everything daily. Most items cost less than $7.00.

The privately owned deli chain was founded more than 10 years ago by Kawal Kapoor, and remains a family business. “We decided to come to NoMa because it’s the next emerging business center,” Kapoor said. “With all the new tenants moving in like the Department of Justice and NPR, we know there will be a need for more lunch options.” A-Deli will open its second location in the 777 SF space in NoMa; they plan to expand further in 2012. A-Deli joins The Perfect Pita and Five Guys on the west side of Second Street, NE.”

  • Sounds good, but here’s hoping they’re open outside of 9-5 M-F for those of us who actually live near here . . .

    agreed. There have been numerous times when I would have bought dinner from one of these establishments only to find that they are closed by the time I get home from work.

    • LibrariNerd

      I third the sentiment. I have to leave work early if I want to grab dinner at Roti.

  • Bloomingdalian

    I don’t get it…what happened to Pound? They just opened, no?

    Thank goodness for a real food option between the 5 guys grease coma and the overpriced salads made for 90lb gymnasts and elves watching their figures.
