DGS Deli Coming To Dupont Showing a Good Sense of Humor

1317 Connecticut Ave, NW

A few weeks ago a What’s Shakin’ in the Makin’ requested by a reader looked at DGS Deli coming to 1317 Connecticut Ave, NW in south Dupont. At that time the owner wrote:

“We are still on schedule for summer opening.”

And to show they have a good sense of humor – now written on the future storefront:

“For 40 years the Jews wandered the desert. We promise it won’t take that long.”

And their Web site says:

“DGS Delicatessen will brine, cure, and smoke all of our meats and fish in house. We will be open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, with an all day to-go market and 85 seats inside the restaurant serving beer, wine and spirits.”

I’ll gladly wait a few more months for that!
