Three Sophisticated Piña Coladas You Should Try

Piña coladas are more often appreciated by Banana Boat–slathered sun seekers than serious cocktail connoisseurs. That’s a shame, says DGS Delicatessen Beverage Director Brian Zipin, because “the piña colada along with the Mai Tai are the two greatest drinks in the world, in my opinion—except for Manhattans.” Zipin and a number of other top bartenders […]

BLT Steak Serves Gefilte Fish for $35 on Its Passover Menu

Whether you love it or hate it, gefilte fish is just one of those foods that you can't make sexy. The Passover staple—typically made with ground carp, whitefish, or pike—is mushy, fishy, and an unappetizing grayish-tan color. While many people buy the stinky stuff in jars, chefs have made many attempts over the years to […]

Six Bottomless Brunch Bargains

Bottomless brunches may be a time-tested method for forestalling a weekend’s inevitable hangover via the ingestion of rubbery eggs Benedict and watery mimosas. Luckily, a handful of local brunch haunts offer all-you-can-eat or -drink menus that are both palatable and reasonably priced. This weekend, skip the $40-plus food-as-an-afterthought spots, and get a decent midday buzz […]

Try Pastrami Fried Rice and Matzo Ball Egg Drop Soup at DGS Delicatessen on Christmas Eve

For the team at DGS Delicatessen, and many Jews, it's tradition to spend Christmas eating Chinese food. Chef Barry Koslow has long frequented Peking Gourmet in Falls Church when the holiday rolls around. "It just seems to be the Jewish thing to do," Koslow says. "They say it's one of their busiest days of the year. And it's all Jews." […]

DC Brau and DGS Delicatessen Collaborate on a New Brew

DC Brau is on a roll with its restaurant collaborations. The brewery teamed up with The Red Hen on a barrel-aged brew released last week. Next comes The Golden Calf, a collaboration with DGS Delicatessen. The limited-edition beer combines DC Brau's Yonder Cities, a Belgian IPA, with DGS Delicatessen's slivovitz plum mash. Slivovitz is a plum brandy […]

DGS Delicatessen’s Pastrami Sandwich Now Bigger

The hallmark of most deli sandwiches is that they're so thick they barely fit in your mouth. So in response to customer feedback, Dupont Circle's DGS Delicatessen is adding extra meat to its pastrami and corned beef sandwiches. Instead of six ounces, the sandwiches will now be stuffed with eight ounces (half a pound) of seven-day-brined, […]

Free Egg Creams at DGS Delicatessen Tonight

National Egg Cream Day just so happens to coincide with DGS Delicatessen GM/beverage director Brian Zipin's birthday. (Coincidence—or destiny?) To celebrate, the Dupont restaurant will give out free chocolate egg creams with dinner tonight. DGS's egg cream is a classic take on the soda-shop staple. After all, Zipin's first job at age 14 was at a hot […]

So Hot Right Now: The Reuben

Reubens are showing up on all types of menus right now. And not just in sandwich form (though there are plenty of those, too). There are also reuben-inspired knishes, hot dogs, and even pasta dishes. DGS Delicatessen offers a fairly traditional version with a combination of corned beef and pastrami, both of which are brined […]

The Hungries: The Best—and the Worst—of D.C. Restaurants in 2012

In 2012, Washingtonians finally got a bunch of things that have been on our food and drink wish lists for years. After more than a century, we have a legal gin-producing distillery: New Columbia Distillers. Finally (finally!), there’s a place to eat some decent matzo ball soup and pastrami, thanks to DGS Delicatessen. A great […]
