The food certainly had the look and feel of a NYC Deli. However, this is not a Kosher Deli, so don't be surprised. When you sit down they offer complimentary Cole slaw and two pickles--one Kosher style and one half sour style--provided you order an entree or a sandwich according to the menu. The slaw was good, but rather heavy... More

As a New York refugee in the culinary wasteland of Virginia, there are few real New York options for me. Chutzpah is a refuge with great pickles, coleslaw, chopped chicken liver, matzo soup, great sandwiches and great breakfasts. If you want the only chance for food similar to NYC its here (no the restaurant in Mosaic does not compare).

We stopped in to see whether we could find kreplach soup, a staple of any good NY deli, but hard to find in No. VA. For starters, when my wife pronounced it "krep-lack," the server acted as if he had never heard of it. Several tries later, he finally inquired "do you mean 'krep-lock?" Even the most snotty Parisian will... More

We have eaten here on several occasions, and have always enjoyed our choices. Even if the taste was a bit different than expected, it is an authentic NY Deli after all, the food is always very flavorful. This place comes highly recommended by these two foodies!

Great deli meats on mediator bread. I miss the New York bread. Perhaps it just isn't available in Northern Virginia. Potato Pancakes are available at Chutzpah. May be the best New York deli south of Philadelphia, but it is not the real thing.

First visit, and we were the only customers at the counter. The server asked if our order was for there or to go, and since we were on our way to an appointment my husband said "to go". After we paid, we realized we actually had more time, so we went to sit at a table. The server said loudly... More

The waiter was not familiar with the menu. The corned beef was too lean. It was dry, the bread was stale. Asked have my sandwich warmed. It was cold.

Stopped in for lunch today after dropping of some clothes at the cleaners. OMG is the food not only tasty but fresh as well. I had the patty melt with hand cut fries (very good) or I could have had onion rings (next visit), and home made pickles. I got it to go but next time I am going to... More

We stopped here on our way home and while the wait sucked (it was Sunday morning), the food was amazing! All three of us were delighted with our dishes and the waitstaff was on point.
