Expensive, but this is going to be a major destination in Washington. $13 got me a pastrami sandwich (no mixing of meats, so no combo pastrami/corned beef). A gorgeous, smoky sandwich, a bit too salty which is why I prefer a combo to straight up pastrami. Bread is excellent.
Also got a side order of the kasha varnishkas. It is a Mediterranean preparation with a tomatoey and spicy sauce with olives. Excellent.
And just for the purpose of research, also got the noodle kugel for dessert. Too expensive, but excellent as well.
This is more 'deli as a culinary treat' than a regular occasion for me. But a great treat nonetheless.
I believe they take reservations, which I predict will be necessary for dinner before long.
