We understand that this pandemic has affected all of us in many ways and much of our lives have changed. Food that is familiar and connected to positive memories has the ability to evoke a feeling of well-being. It is our hope that our food can provide some sense of normalcy during these uncertain times.
We would also like to be able to provide some assistance to our employees who have worked tirelessly alongside us to make Del Sur Cafe a reality. We have set up a GoFundMe page in their honor and 100% of tips will go to this relief fund. If you would like to make a donation beyond this you are more than welcome to do so. You can find the link here.
While we maintain our physical distance, we connect with you in thought and at your table. Please stay safe and know that this is not forever.
Beyond our normal sanitation procedures, our workers will be wearing masks at all times while working inside the restaurant as well as during deliveries. We will not be accepting cash during this time due to the risk of contamination. We will continue to clean and disinfect all areas of our restaurant with particular attention to the doorhandles at the front and the table being used for takeout.
Even though we aren’t open for happy hour, you can still enjoy one of our delicious drinks. We are offering two options: 1/2 pitcher of our sangria (red or white) for $13.00, a whole pitcher for $25.00 or 1/2 pitcher of our pisco sour for $16.00, a whole pitcher for $30.00.View Menu ↠
Our signature dishes include the chivito sandwich and the parrillada.
The chivito is the national dish of Uruguay. It was created in 1944 at the Punta Del Este restaurant called El Mejillón. The story goes that a tourist came to the restaurant asking for goat meat (chivo). The owner of the restaurant did not have goat meat, but instead of turning the customer away he decided to serve them a sandwich with thin flank steak and added ham, cheese, egg, and other items from the kitchen hoping that they wouldn’t notice. The customer loved the sandwich so much that it was added to the menu and has become a quintessentially Uruguayan dish.
The parrillada consists of a platter of grilled meats including flank steak, short ribs, Argentinian sausage, sweetbread, and blood sausage. It is served with chimichurri sauce and is typically shared and enjoyed at social gatherings, among friends and family.
Due to the fact that we have limited space, we will not be taking reservations unless you have a party of 6 or more people, in which case we will try our best to accommodate you. Please call us directly (202.758.0228) for all reservations.
We look forward to seeing you at Del Sur Cafe!
