Bryan Voltaggio’s Lunchbox Is Now Open in DC (Menu)

Chevy Chase Pavilion is quickly becoming a one-stop shop for Bryan Voltaggio’s DC restaurants. In addition to Range and Aggio—a spinoff of which just opened in Baltimore—you’ll find lunch and dinner at Lunchbox as of Monday.

Voltaggio originally debuted the casual sandwich concept in Frederick under a short-term lease while the nearby diner-style Family Meal was in the process of opening. The first Lunchbox has since closed, but you’ll find some similarities at the new industrially styled spot. The all-day menu centers around an eclectic mix of sandwiches, from a home-style “fileo-fish” with fried-catfish and slaw to slow-braised pork shoulder with cabbage kimchee and a vegetarian “gardener” with grilled and smoked avocado, green goddess dressing, and burrata cheese. Entrée salads and soup round out the menu, such as a blue-crab-topped Chesapeake cobb and “supreme pizza” soup with roasted peppers, tomatoes, and pepperoni. Diners can also build their own bowls of greens.

The lineup also caters to kids (and adults with youthful tastes) with offerings such as grilled cheese, sides of roasted applesauce, freshly baked cookies, and soft-serve ice cream. Those looking for a more grown-up dining experience can order draft beer and glasses of wine with their meal.

Lunchbox. 5335 Wisconsin Ave., NW. Open daily for lunch and dinner.
