Loeb’s Deli Moving (Nearby) Reopening in Nov.

Loeb’s Deli was located at 832 15th Street, NW. By the by, anyone happen to know who is moving into the space? There were a number of adjoining retail spaces on the block that had been vacated. We judged the restaurant to mostly positive reviews back in April ’09.

It’ll be opening at 1712 I St, NW in November (photo below). It’s hard to tell but it looks like they might be moving into a smaller space. Hopefully, it won’t affect the quality of a mean pastrami sandwich.

    The building is going through a multi year gut rehab so all the tenants had to move

    There used to be a really great sandwich shop down by the Georgetown waterfront that baked its own loaves of bread. They closed or moved maybe 6 years ago, I never found them again. And no cynics, it wasn’t Subway… POP, you should run a survey for the best sandwich shop in DC! I’d love to find a good spot in Petworth for a good turkey and cheese on rye!

    • The best turkey sandwich I’ve had is at MGM Roast Beef off Brentwood. They roast fresh and hand carve every day. I’ve found the roast turkey at Taylor Gourmet a little too dry. You’re on your own for rye bread.

  • Yup, the entire building is being vacated for a massive rehab. Nothing new expected to move in until 2016.

    The Washington Post did a nice write-up about Loeb’s here:

    If they keep the interior of that space it has a old-fashioned diner feel- lunch counter in the back and everything. It used to be the Art Gallery Grille, a funny little place run by the nicest Lebanese guy…the Mediterranean food was great! I really miss it…

    At least it’s not being replaced by a Subway.
