Metro Connection talks DC sandwiches. Yes, we have a deserved reputation for being short on authentic delis, but if you are willing to put a few miles under your belt, there are delis worth the drive.

Food with Tim Carman: DC Delis
Washington is not known as a home of great delis and sub shops. But there’s a new Philadelphia-style Italian deli on H street, Northeast. And early indications are that the hoagies at Taylor Gourmet are worthy of the Philly tradition. Washington City Paper food writer Tim Carman joins us to talk about Taylor Gourmet – and to steer us to some of the best sandwich shops in the region.

The list:
Taylor Gourmet Deli
Deli City
Max’s Kosher Cafe
A. Litteri, Inc.
The Parkway Deli
The Italian Store
Jackson’s Roasting and Carving Co.

I would add the sandwich shrine of Mangialardo’s. Under the radar and exquisite in its simplicity.

The good news is, you could check off all stops within a week’s time, before circling back for a more in depth delve.
