Bethesda Has Pop-Up Deli at Newton’s

May 27, 2014

About six months ago, Douglas Singer partnered up with Peter Smith, a chef best known for his Chinatown restaurant, PS 7’s, which closed in late 2012. Smith was also, for a brief period, co-executive chef at Newton’s Table in Bethesda, a relationship that ultimately helped Singer’s Significant Meats move into its next phase: A pop-up restaurant inside Newton’s Table.

Every Sunday and Monday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Singer and Smith take over the bar at Newton’s and transform it into a Jewish deli — but one with a wider cultural focus. So while you can order Singer’s melt-in-your-mouth corned beef or brisket, you can also dig into an iconic bite of D.C. (Smith’s half-smoke on a Parker house bun) or Pittsburgh (a Primanti Bros.-style sandwich with corned beef, pastrami, gruyere, French fries and a fried egg).
