Buffalo & Bergen

The jolly, larger-than-life personality and myriad scattershot interests of Gina Chersevani belie this renaissance woman’s ability to apply intense focus to any task at hand. Whether she’s practically inventing a professional field from her passion for ultra-creative mixology, or securing DC’s only mobile liquor license for her 1967 Airstream bar, or creating a popular hipster, “Jewish style” deli inspired by her mother’s beloved childhood soda shop, Chersevani dreams big dreams, and wills them into being.

After career twists and turns, taking the patrons of former restaurants on a worldly journey of cocktails, Gina struck out on her own to open Buffalo & Bergen at Union Market in Washington, DC. The 1930’s style soda counter serves handcrafted knishes and loaded bagel sandwiches inspired by interweaving the memories of places like, Coney Island, with the sentimental ingredients of her childhood.
