Kosher Deli Truck Sixth & Rye Debuts To Long Lines

DCist Sixth & Rye, Spike Mendelsohn's new kosher deli food truck, debuted this morning on the curb outside the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. Lines, unsurprisingly, were long -- but the product was worth the wait. Helmed by Chefs Spike Mendelsohn and Malcolm Mitchell, the truck serves up "old-fashioned Kosher deli cuisine" like corned beef sandwiches, fresh-cut potato chips, and, of course, pickles. By Beatrice Livioco Sixth & Rye, Spike Mendelsohn's new kosher deli food truck, debuted this morning on the curb outside the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. Lines, unsurprisingly, were long -- but the product was worth the wait. Helmed by Chefs Spike Mendelsohn and Malcolm Mitchell, the truck serves up "old-fashioned Kosher deli cuisine" like corned beef sandwiches, fresh-cut potato chips, and, of course, pickles. The truck -- which is actually on loan from the Eat Wonky fleet (Wonky's Jeff Kelley is also part of the project) -- was the result of Sixth & I's "Next Great Idea for the New Year" contest, which asked Washingtonians what the Synagogue could be doing to expand its reach into the D.C. community. Sixth & Rye is funded in part by a grant from The Natan Fund, an organization which "supports innovative projects that are shaping the Jewish future," and the truck serves exclusively kosher fare -- there's even a mashgiach supervising all food preparation and service. We wouldn't expect those lines to get any shorter -- the truck, at least initially, will only be operating on Fridays during "lunch hours" around high-traffic areas like Chinatown, Farragut Square and Dupont Circle.
