Alexandria To Welcome The Cherish Deli

A new bagel shop will be soon opening its doors in Old Town Alexandria, providing a bit more chew to the morning meal. The Chewish Deli has sealed the deal to take over the former Pendleton Carryout space at 807 Pendleton Street. Passers-by may have already spotted the signage out front and the bustling activity in and out of the shop as owner Gregg Linzey prepares for opening.

According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “The Chewish Deli cultivated its roots as Genuine Water Bagels, a pop-up bagel and pizza shop within then-La Trattoria (now Michael’s Little Italy). The pop-up, which began in November 2018, later moved from the restaurant to a food truck, delivering bagels and their accouterments throughout the region. “We had originally wanted to move into a brick-and-mortar, but when we first started the business that wasn’t really in our plan until maybe another year down the road,” Linzey said. But The Chewish Deli has been truckless for several months due to some needed repairs, and Alexandrians need their bagels. While Linzey has been selling his wares in various cafes around the area as a stopgap, the concept of a brick-and-mortar shop has hastened its timeline a bit.”

As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Fans of the food truck as well as the deli’s former pop-ups will find much to love about the menu. From favorites to new choices, the options will be robust. Some of those potential additions include matzo ball soup in the fall, rugelach, kugel, and meats and cheese by the pound, he said. Another something to look forward to Pizza. Linzey is aiming for The Chewish Deli to be open by the end of August, with initial hours from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.”
