The property at 4410 W. Lovers Lane could soon become a delicatessen, if a current zoning change request is approved. It’s all a bit of a technicality.

Currently, the building is zoned in such a way that a business opening in the unoccupied building could serve food off-premises — grab-and-go sandwiches and snacks. The applicants, represented by the law firm Jackson Walker L.L.P., hope to build a dine-in deli, where patrons could sit and enjoy their meal, or grab a fresh slab of meat to take home and cook.

“The concept is a modern-day delicatessen, which will sell select cuts of meat and will have a limited selection of meats prepared on site for consumption on or off site,” the application states. “The concept also includes the sale of beer and wine.”

Representative Suzan Kedron did not return calls for comment, but to us it sounds like the classic neighborhood delis made popular in places like New York City — but with Texas charm over New York attitude.

The property sits in a largely residential neighborhood, although the properties to the east and west are both zoned for commercial use.
