The Best Sandwich Place to Reopen Downtown

The Best Sandwich Place—which closed its location at 1801 K Street, Northwest, due to building renovations—has announced plans to reopen in a larger location nearby at 1776 I Street, Northwest. There’s also an outpost at National Harbor.

The new spot will be the largest yet, occupying 3,261 square feet in the ten-story building. While the former windowless location felt more like a hole in the wall (or hidden gem, depending on how much you liked the fare), the second will look out a glass front at street-level, with more focus on interior design. The menu is getting a makeover, too, courtesy of Culinary Institute of America grad David Hong. The no-frills lineup once included sandwich standards such as an Italian cold cut, Reuben, Cuban, and multiple variations on the club. Let’s hope they keep the carved turkey sandwich station like in the old days.
