Best Store Bought Pickles in DC (no restaurants)?

ViolentScarlet | Sep 30, 2008 01:04 PM

I'm in search of a decent jar of pickles in DC. Having grown up in southeast Michigan, which has a surprisingly large number of great delis, and also having lived in NY, I'm going through major pickle withdrawal here in DC. I'm a fan of most types of pickles - half sour, full sour, new dill, extra garlicky, whatever...I'm just sick of grocery store-bought clausen's or whatever else have you that just taste nothing like the pickles you get at a Jewish deli in NY. Even Loeb's, which is as close to a NY deli as you can get in DC, has terrible pickles.
Can anyone point me to a grocery store or somewhere else that sells jars of great pickles (not just one pickle that comes as a side to a sandwich) in DC? The furthest I could go is really close suburban MD or VA (no further than Arlington or Bethesda). Anywhere from downtown to Adams Morgan is the easiest. I hear Ba-Tempte pickles are good but I haven't seen those at my local Safeway.
