More Info about my Pastrami Fantasy, Smoked & Stacked, about to become a Reality in Spring 2016

via Smoked & Stacked coming to 1239 9th Street, NW in Spring 2016

Yesterday we learned about all the retail and restaurants coming to the Convention Center. Here’s lots more info about what got me most giddy – from a press release:

“Marjorie Meek-Bradley (, in partnership with Geoff Dawson and Peter Bayne of Tin Shop (, are very proud to announce their new sandwich shop Smoked & Stacked in D.C.’s Shaw neighborhood. Smoked & Stacked will showcase in-house brined and smoked pastrami that will melt in your mouth. The menu will also feature smoked chicken, portobello mushrooms, and savory breakfast sandwiches with more to come. Customers can choose from the signature sandwich menu, but will also be able to build their own sandwich or salad that will be fast and delicious.

“The future of food is simple, well prepared items that allow us to focus on a couple of things and do them well,” says upcoming Top Chef contestant Marjorie Meek-Bradley. “I want to make food that I love, the food that I want to eat.” Marjorie spent the first chapter of her career working under some of the best chefs in the country before settling in D.C. where she is the Executive Chef at Ripple and Roofers Union. While working at Ripple Marjorie perfected her house-made pastrami for Sunday Brunch.

“We are very excited to be opening the first location of Smoked & Stacked on 9th St. in the Convention Center,” says partner Geoff Dawson. “There are so many new spots opening on the block, we expect the neighborhood to become a hub of the growing bar and restaurant scene in DC.” Smoked & Stacked is expected to open in Spring of 2016. More details to come as we approach our opening date.”

    She definitely knows her meats. But your pastrami fantasy is already available at Stachowski’s 🙂

    • Agreed. If I can’t be back for smoked meat at Schwartz’s in Montreal, I prefer Stachowski’s here. And the price of the sandwich is fair…it so huge, it feeds two!.

  • This was the one place proposed for the Convention Center (not far from me) that really caught my interest. As for Stachowski’s, my experience with their pastrami was tough, fatty and overpriced.

  • This is the spot where Chatman’s D’Vine Bakery and Cafe was. Debra you were a few years too early… we miss you.

  • Native New Yorker who greatly misses well-cooked pastrami. This looks heavenly, but in the interim I must go find this Stachowski’s place.
