Mega Whole Foods is bringing several local favorites to Pennsylvania Avenue.
When the new Whole Foods Market opens at 2101 Pennsylvania Avenue on October 14th, it will be bringing a lot more than just a super market. The 61,990 square foot mega market will also have a 140-seat food hall that will include several local favorites including Cheu Noodle Bar, Dizengoff, and Wiz Kid, the new fast-casual concept from Rich Landau.

Dizengoff hosts Breakfast-for-Dinner book party with Chef John Currence
The answer to the insipid interview question: “If you had the opportunity to invite anyone to dinner, who would it be and why?” has always been obvious to me.

When Abe Met Diz Was a Big Hit | Photo via Cook N Solo
On Saturday night, Abe met Diz and 15 minutes later it was over. The pastrami pita pop-up at Mike Solomonov’s Dizengoff saw 50-sandwiches walk out the door starting at 10 p.m. By 10:15 the final sandwich had been snapped up.
But have no fear, the pop-up returns the next three Saturday nights (September, 17, September, 24 and October, 1) for pastrami tucked into a caraway rye pita and topped with beet-pickled turnips, dill tehina, sumac slaw and fried onions. Also back is the frozen riesling – which was also a big success. Dizengoff will have more frozen riesling on hand as many showed up just for the icy wine.
But there is one big change. The pop-up now will begin at 8 p.m. now, with doors opening at Dizengoff at 7:30 p.m.
The sandwiches are $12 each and we suggest getting there early.
