Taylor Gourmet. Sandwiches crafted with attention to detail and fine ingredients are the hallmark of this Philadelphia-inspired classic. Taylor's substitution-friendly staff piles fresh roasted turkey, ham, chicken cutlets, and cold cuts beneath emerald arugula, juicy roasted red peppers, and waves of provolone so finely aged it snaps on the palate. If the Vine Street Expressway (chicken, prosciutto, pesto) or the Callowhill (spicy house-made meatballs in marinara
sauce) don't grab you, the delicate pasta salads will make you a believer. Other locations can be found on H Street NE, in the shadow of the White House, in the heart of Chinatown, and on K Street NW, in the bottom of the massive CityVista complex. 1908 14th St. NW, U St. Corridor, Washington, DC, 20009. 202/588–7117. www.taylorgourmet.com.
