Villa Deli in Bethesda Is No More!

Marty L. | Jun 21, 2004 05:11 PM

I went into Villa Deli today for the Monday special of zershkh polo (chicken w/barberries). The place was suspiciously quiet, and the listed special was, get this, Pasticcio! Which is kinda weird in a Persian restaurant . . . uh, wait a minute, it's *no longer a Persian restaurant*! The owners sold it and now it's Greek -- Villa Cafe rather than Villa Deli. (I didn't notice at first because it's laid out exactly the same and they're selling off many of the items from VD.)

This is truly tragic, if only for the loss of the amazing fesenjen every third Thursday. Does anyone know where else they make great fesenjen, and/or whether the VD folks have relocated somewhere?
