Greek Deli DC

8 Oct

Greek Deli on 19th Street NW in DC is lunch spot where you can expect a line every day of the week.  The line is indicative of just how amazing and authentic the greek cuisine offered there is.  Kostas Fostieris is the Chef and Owner of this gem of an establishment.  The man loves food and his customers and you can taste it in every bite in every dish you grab from there.  The gyro, the sides, the meatballs- I’ve not come across a single item that wasn’t extremely satisfying.

Last week I went on a little progressive eating outting with some co-workers.  First stop was Pinkberry for the last free greek yogurt Wednesday of a month or so long promotion.  I had a pretty decent turkey and avocado sandwich waiting for me at the office, but once co-workers suggested Greek Deli for lunch it wasn’t long before just walking with them to GD turned into just getting a side turned into getting the Wednesday meatball special (authentic greek meatballs with lemon and white wine sauce and a side of greek salad).  As I stood in line, I began to snap a few photos with the intention of writing about GD.  Next thing you know Kostas and his staff starting chanting about “Paparazzi!!!” and Kostas was around the front of the counter asking to take photos with us.  How fun!  I am such a fan of our friendly neighborhood Greek lunch spot 🙂  If you work around the Farragut West area and have not had Greek Deli, you know what needs to happen for lunch one day this week.
