Jewish-style Deli Opening in Dupont Circle
This morning's news blew my mind! Anyone that knows me, knows that I have been talking non-stop about a Jewish deli opening in the Dupont area for years. Whenever an open space presented itself in my neighborhood, I prayed to the Foodie Gods that a Jewish deli would go into the space.
The former chef at Tallula, Barry Koslow, is going to be opening a Jewish-style deli in South Dupont.
Reallly, realllly, reallllllllllly hoping this place is the real deal.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's good. I know that the masses will appreciate his intent to "lighten" the cuisine, but I hope "lighten" doesn't neuter. I went to Kutcher's, a new restaurant in Tribecca last weekend, which is based on the well known Catskills resort -- it is fancy-schmantzy with no soul or character, and the food was mediocre, at best.
"lighten" the cuisine? I don't know about anyone else but when I want good Jewish deli food, I'm not looking for "light" food LOL! I want a thick, juicy pastrami sandwich along with a bowl of matzo ball soup.
All that said, I, too, hope that the food is not only good but the real thing!
