Heckman's Deli sold, will continue to operate with Ethiopian menu
Heckman's Deli in downtown Bethesda has been sold. The deli, which opened four years ago this month at 4914 Cordell Avenue, will continue to operate with some significant changes. Heckman's new owner says the deli will still sell beer and wine, but the food offerings will change to Ethiopian cuisine.
Just a few months ago, there were no Ethiopian restaurants in downtown Bethesda. The new Heckman's menu will bring us up to three, quite a boon for fans of the cuisine. If you are still seeking the old menu, the owner says various Heckman's specialties will continue to be available a few doors up the street at Caddies on Cordell, at 4922 Cordell.
