So Where the Hell Can You Find Jamie Stachowski Charcuterie in This Town?
That was the question I put to the celebrated meat man when he called up out of the blue this afternoon, asking me what he should call his forthcoming charcuterie line. (For the record, I told him he should just name the stuff after himself, no matter how difficult "Stachowski" is to pronounce for people who spend all their damn time silently working a computer; the Eastern European surname would lend the meats instant credibility, at least for those who haven't already sampled Jamie Stachowski's sausage, pates, and cured products.)
But back to the question: The short answer is many places. You can find Stachowski's meats at the Kielbasa Factory in Rockville, the Lebanese Butcher and Restaurant in Falls Church, Enology Wine Bar on Wisconsin Avenue NW, Willow in Arlington, and even Thirsty Bernie Sports Bar & Grill in Arlington, where the chef once worked until his surprising departure last year. In the near future, look for Stachowski's charcuterie at Ristorante Posto, Veritas Wine Bar near Dupont Circle, and at the Willard Room downtown.
