Eli's Deli in D.C.

Will stay open after all, looking for new location.

Good news for Washington and travelers thereto. .

        Foggy Bottom (orange, blue) Farragut North or DuPont Circle (red)

        short walks, safe neighborhood

    1. I just placed a delivery order at Eli's. They are still at the old location for now.

      I have done this before, but you need to know what to order. Definitely not food that needs to be served hot (don't even think about fries!) and you have to think about it as saving you the trip, not gourmet food.

      Every time I call they give me the wrong delivery company name so it takes a few tries to get it right but eventually it will work. There are evidently very strict laws about who can deliver where, so the same company that delivers in Arlington cannot deliver in DC.

      A number of cities have this type of service and it's really convenient if you manage your expectations.
