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.

  1. First bagels, then a deli... what is next, a schvitz?

      1. 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!

            FWIW the matzo ball soup at bethesda bagel is actually very good - especially for DC.

              I second the matzoh ball soup at Bethesda Bagels.

        2. Just came across this and was reminded of a place that a friend recommended (I miss Langer's in LA, and their great pastrami) Loeb's Deli. Not quite Dupont, but close. Has anyone ever been? Worth going?

            Loeb's is nice, but not kosher.
