Uptown Deli - Get well soon

Mister Big | Nov 21, 2010 05:27 AM

I've eaten twice at the new Uptown Deli in Bethesda, and twice been disappointed.

First visit: Carry-out BLT. Bacon soggy/soft, bread under-toasted (a pet peeve with so many restaurants).

Second visit: NEO (nova, eggs, onions) omelet. Very odd flavor (cinnamon overtones) and bread under-toasted. Home fries were good. Coffee (Mayorca) only so-so.

I haven't had their real deli sandwiches yet, and that may be where they truly shine. I hope so, as a good Jewish-style deli would be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

I'm going to wait a few weeks to see how things shake out. I do wish them well, but they have a long way to go.
