Five years after opening his first neighborhood deli, Carving Room co-founder Oded Weizmann is gearing up to plant a new eatery in neighboring NoMa.

The local restaurateur began serving deli classics (think: Reubens, pastrami sandwiches, egg salad) and Moroccan fare in a new development on the outskirts of Mt. Vernon Triangle. As first reported by Bisnow, he now hopes to grow the business by adding a second location early next year at 130 M Street NE.

Weizmann tells Eater that the new 3,000-square-foot restaurant should be able to accommodate about 100 diners (80 inside, 15 outside). He expects to keep roughly the same hours as he does on Massachusetts Avenue NW, which means NoMa residents will be privy to breakfast, lunch, happy hour, dinner, and late-night dining (the kitchen typically remains open until midnight).

In addition to the sandwiches, salads, and specialty burgers currently available at the flagship restaurant, Weizmann mapped out plans to broaden the dining catalog by introducing gourmet flatbreads, braised meats and “possibly a meatball menu.” He’ll also continue with the pickling process and dip making (lemon-yogurt; honey-harissa; tomato jam) that adds oomph to his various creations.
