Taylor Gourmet, Part Deux

This Part Deux revisits a second location of a place we've been before: the new 14th Street location of DC sandwich shop Taylor Gourmet.

The new location, at the old Ruff and Ready storefront, shares man of the same traits as the others: a garage feel, recycled materials as furniture (see: plastic bucket light fixtures). This location is more deli counter feel with dividers creating a natural line to the cash register. From there, there are a few four-tops, some long tables, and a row of high bar tables by the far wall.

On the docket for tonight were two sandwiches, a Lombard Avenue (sopressata, genoa salami, roasted red peppers, pesto, mozzarella) for me and a Tasker Street (arugala, sharp provolone, parmesan, mozzarella, goat cheese) for Official Girlfriend of DCWD Texas. The sandwiches were again real good for me, wonderful salami and fresh ingredients on lovely semolina bread (Texas: "everything was quality, and the bread was awesome"). On Texas's end, her sandwich was probably a bit too loaded with cheese, but that was probably not Taylor's fault.

The Verdict


Still great sandwiches, especially for Northeastern expats.
