Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of catering does Washington Deli provide?
Primarily we are an office caterer specializing in corporate breakfasts, corporate lunches, and pizza orders. We also do company happy hours, box lunches. and buffet style functions. Because of our close proximity to the National Mall, we also specialize in tourist group catering. We are also lucky to have an on premise Sushi Chef, so our Sushi and Sashimi menu is truly a great option.

Is delivery free?
Free Delivery is available with orders of 10 people or more for any breakfast platter, the Boardroom Lunch, or the Classic Business Lunch ONLY. Free delivery for these orders is only available within a reasonable walking distance (about 3 blocks) of the restaurant, during normal business hours.

What forms of payment does Washington Deli accept?
Washington Delicatessen accepts all major credit cards, cash, company and personal checks, and Pay Pal. For those companies wishing to establish a corporate account, please complete the Corporate Account Application. Once a corporate account has been established the terms are net 30 days.

Do you provide Kosher Food?
We can provide a "Kosher Style" lunch where we follow rules set out by the Jewish faith for food preparation. Kosher kitchens must maintain a strict set of rules which we do not observe. For the most part however, our clients find our "Jewish Style" platter acceptable given the difficulty of finding strictly kosher facilities.

Do you deliver pizza?
We deliver the best pizza in the city! Minimum order for pizza delivery is three pizzas. There is a nominal charge for delivery. You can add salads and dessert or drinks to bring the order up to the minimum. Please give us as much advance notice as possible.

Can orders be picked up easily?
If you want to pick up your order we will bring it right to your car. Just call us on your cell phone to tell us when you are outside in the loading zone and we will bring your order out to you. Remember that we are on the corner of 20th and I Streets, and 20th Street runs one way from south to north.

How can I save on delivery charges?
Most delivery charges depend on distance and security. To keep delivery charges as low as possible for those buildings with high security, consider using our curb side delivery service. This service requires that you bring your office cart or co-workers down to the street to meet our delivery person at the curb. Please call for details!

Are paper products free?
Disposable paper products are provided free of charge with orders of 10 people or more for any breakfast platter, the Classic Business Lunch, and the Boardroom Business Lunch. For all other orders there will be a charge of 0.75 per person. Tablecloths are available at a cost of $5.00 each.
