Things We Love: Lavash Rolls at Cafe Romeo’s
This Italian takeout spot does a surprisingly yummy Armenian sandwich.
For $8.45, the un-Italian lavash roll includes equally un-Italian filling options. In the Mediterranean roll, a lamb and beef kabob joins sumac and yogurt dressing. The spinach-and-artichoke version includes tomato, caramelized onions, mozzarella, feta and a garlic sauce. We like the chicken and portabella mushroom lavash, juicy and overflowing with tomato chunks, huge spinach leaves, chicken breast, portabella, feta and mozzarella, all lathered up with a zesty red pepper sauce.
The tiny, mostly take-out spot—there's a few plastic tables inside—sits between Georgetown and Glover Park. You could walk down Wisconsin Avenue, just near the Georgetown cemetery, a gazillion times before noticing. It's hiding behind trees lit year-round with twinkling Christmas bulbs.
Cafe Romeo’s, 2132 Wisconsin Ave., NW; 202-337-1111.
