Tysons Today Around Town

Guy Brandt has been in the food business for 30 years after pursuing a career as a percussionist. In the food service industry he found a place to utilize his creativity and love of people.

Guy first got his start in fine dining with The Kings Fare Group (City Lights and The Brass Elephant) out of Baltimore, MD. He worked under French chef, Andre Garmard for 8 years. His interest peeked in the deli business while working with his cousin at Celebrity Deli in Rockville.

Guy took the leap in opening Brooklyn’s Deli and Catering in Rockville in 2004. This location was a huge success, but he was looking to expand his operation. In 2010, the Potomac Woods location provided an opportunity for growth.

For the past 8 years Guy has been fortunate to bring aboard Ibrahim Karama who worked as a chef at the Hilton and Charles Slaughter GM Of Fontina Grill in management. Guy loves talking to his customers and meeting new ones!

He will talk everything from food, to his Jewish heritage and his love of sports (all Capitals, Skins and Nats). More than likely he will be having you try his latest special or a slice of hand carved pastrami !
