The satellite DGS Delicatessen shipped out to the Northern Virginia suburbs closed Tuesday, just a few months shy of its second anniversary.

“There’s no plan to reopen or relocate it,” a DGS worker who answered the phone at the flagship location in D.C. said of the quietly shuttered Mosaic District outpost.

Cofounders and cousins Nick and David Wiseman in 2012 first introduced area diners to their take on upscale Jewish deli food at the original DGS, which continues operating in Dupont Circle. The menu features comfort foods including matzo ball soup, potato latkes, Reuben sandwiches, and challah French toast.

The critically acclaimed restaurant was exported to Fairfax County in summer 2015, joining the burgeoning crop of hospitality ventures lining the streets of Merrifield’s booming mixed-use complex.

Property managers for Mosaic did not have an immediate response regarding whether another tenant has been lined up to assume control of the DGS plot.
