Y'all, get ready for a deli in Dupont Circle, coming to you from the chef who used to man the kitchen at Tallula and, before that, Mendocino. The Washingtonian reported yesterday evening that Barry Koslow has a pending liquor license application for a deli named DGS Delicatessen that will open on Connecticut Avenue just south of the circle.
He's partnering with the guys from the Roadside Food Project and aims to serve your typical deli options — corned beef, pastrami (both house-made), matzo ball soup pickled fish — but they're also going to be boozing it up with craft cocktails, beer and wine. As Todd Kliman notes, Jewish delis have not historically fared too well here in DC, but here's hoping this will change that. DGS is aiming for an opening in summer 2012.
