A DC institution, Stachowski’s Market is an old-fashioned, honest-to-goodness corner deli in Georgetown that serves sandwiches, subs, and salads. Hundreds of reviewers post to Yelp and UrbanSpoon to declare Stachowski’s pastrami sandwich as the best in the region, with dozens more praising the shop’s four-meat Grinder and Turkey Club sandwiches.
If you’re more of a home cook, you can swing by to pick up cuts of ribeye, filet, porterhouse, and veal, as well as seafood, house-made sausages, and cut-to-order bacon, pate, or charcuterie. After 5:30 p.m. during the work week, Stachowski’s also serves a limited quantity of prepared dinners like smoked brisket with mashed potatoes, baked Atlantic salmon cakes, or leg of lamb with mixed vegetables. If you can’t make it to 28th Street right at 5:30, it’s best to call ahead and reserve your meal, as dinners are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
