Breaking News: Jamie Stachowski Is Out at Thirsty Bernie

The charcuterie-obsessed Jamie Stachowski.
Master of meat Jamie Stachowski is no longer in the kitchen at Thirsty Bernie Sports Bar & Grille, where he was making nearly everything by hand, including bread, pierogis, salad dressing, and of course, his famed charcuterie. After garnering praise for his excellent sausages and cured meats at his late Restaurant Kolumbia, he created a protein-heavy menu for the Arlington sports pub. But owner Steven Sadeghian had only brought Stachowski on to get the place up and running, and when the chef’s contract expired on November 30, it wasn’t renewed.

“He wants to take it in a different direction,” says Stachowski, who notes that Sadeghian will add pizza to the menu and turn to “convenience cooking”—buying everything premade that Stachowski had taken pains to make in-house—but will still buy some of Stachowski’s charcuterie such as pâtés and sausages.   

Stachowski isn’t sure what he’ll do next. He hopes to mass-market his Stachowski Brand Charcuterie (you can currently order it by e-mailing or calling 202-413-7355).
