Capriotti’s, the Delaware-based delicatessen whose favor with Vice President Joe Biden has been well-documented, will open its first D.C. location at 1800 M St. NW.
George Vincent Jr., the Capriotti’s franchisee developing the D.C. market, confirmed he has signed a lease for the space. He hopes to open the deli by the first or second week of November. Miller Walker Retail Real Estate represented Capriotti’s in the deal.
“Maybe instead of [Biden] and [President Barack Obama] going to Taylor Gourmet, they are going to be coming to Capriotti’s,” Vincent said.
