Families and Georgetown students pack this sandwich shop, run by Smith Point chef David Scribner. Sandwiches are named for Nantucket beaches.
The Nobadeer ($6.95), a pile of fresh-carved turkey, house-made stuffing, and cranberry sauce on sourdough, is tops. The Polpis ($6.95) is good-quality pastrami with great spicy mustard and Muenster cheese on rye, but better without the caramelized onions that are included.
At night, there are three comfort classics: chicken pot pie, meatloaf with mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy, or half of an herb-roasted chicken with mushroom gravy and stuffing (all $9.95). For dessert, choose from a dozen flavors of Giffords ice cream.
