Chutzpah Deli, Fairfax
gets a rave review from Michael Stern. Funny to see one of our local joints get treated in this manner.
Wow. Have to say I never expected that kind of rave but we've been getting a lot of attention recently especially after we were mentioned on NPR.
I happen to work at the Fairfax Chutzpah so it's nice to see all these good reviews.
My personal recommendations:
Any Grilled Sandwich
Luca Brasi (personal favorite)
Bagels (if you like it get nova lox too)
And if you stop by on a Sunday or Monday night I'll be the one with a short ponytail.
Oh yeah and it only gets crowded on weekends and a little busy at lunches. Evenings during the week it's pretty slow so you'll get faster service.
I LOVE the one in Fairfax, and was thrilled that Tysons Corner got it's own outlet. The one in Tysons hasn't been busy the few times I've been there.
One small complaint: the pimply-faced kid behind the counter packed my half-sours in WATER, so by the next day they were CUCUMBERS. At $5 for a container full, I was not pleased.
