Bernie's Delicatessen & Gourmet Market
From 1989 to 2008, Bernia Socha's family served as co-owners of Wagshal's Delicatessen, a DC staple among locals and celebrities since 1925. But when the commute from Northern Virginia to DC got too daunting for Bernie, he decided to work closer to home, and this meant establishing his own namesake delicatessen in Fairfax. Now, he and his wife, seasoned deli owners, re-create some of Wagshal’s finest New York–inspired sandwiches along with a new menu of comfort foods praised by the Washington Post in 2009.
Freshly baked french baguettes and Jewish-style rye breads hold up to 1 pound of traditional proteins, such as Virginia baked ham and German bologna, as well as beef tongue, pastrami, and Nova Scotia salmon. Year-round, the deli enhances any meal with Italian illy coffee and more than 20 condiments for any sandwich. Traditional egg breakfasts are served up only in the morning, and to-go dinners of baked ziti and a chicken roasted over a flute of beer and herbs are toted out of the diner in the evening. During the chillier months, Bernie and his chefs create housemade soups and chilies that are meant to immediately warm the soul and unfreeze frostbitten stomachs.
