With some help from neighbors, Dingfelder’s celebrating two years on Capitol Hill

Hemsworth and Dingfelder in 2018

The bad news is some idiot spray painted a nonsensical, trolling hate message across the E Pine front of Dingfelder’s Delicatessen over the weekend. CHS would rather not report on the act but we also know that sunshine disinfects.

The good news is helpful neighbors painted over and covered up the hate before Stephanie Hemsworth and Vance Dingfelder had to deal with it.

That’s especially good because Dingfelder’s is also marking its second anniversary at 14th and Pine this week.

CHS reported here on the early days of Dingfelder’s growth as it has slowly added new offerings and even took its time on basics — like seating.

To celebrate, the Jewish deli is spending Tuesday handing out free hot dogs and $1 latkes from 11 AM to 7 PM. That’s also good news.

  1. Love us some Dingfelder’s. My Spouse is Jewish and they did an excellent job 1/2 catering our wedding (other half catered was non Jewish). Decided to stop by today, unwittingly of the discount. Of course my spouse dug the discount ;) and we devoured our latkes instantly.

    Delicious food. If you grew up in NYC, this place is the real deal.
