Call it a home run for sandwich lovers: Mike Isabella announced today that he’ll open a branch of his popular 14th Street sandwich joint, G, at Nationals Park. The spinoff will be open in time for the exhibition game against the Detroit Tigers on March 29.
The menu will be similar to the original, with Italian-American classics such as the chicken Parm and meaty hero and a vegetarian roasted cauliflower sub with romesco and pickled vegetables. Sandwiches inspired by fellow chefs, like the Drewno—named for the Source’s Scott Drewno—with house-made kielbasa will be part of the menu, as will a rotating “sandwich of the homestand” special. Also available: Isabella’s craveable lamb chili, a tasty grab for those early cool-weather games.
The sandwich shop isn’t the only new dining option at the stadium. Levy Restaurants, which runs several concessions, will introduce items such as sushi, stir-fry noodles, crabcakes, and a number of vegetarian and gluten-free options this season. Neighborhood restaurant options outside the ballpark have also grown since the last home game, and now include Bluejacket brewery, Osteria Morini, and Agua 301, among others.
Look for G on the main concourse in right field near the first-base gate, behind section 136.
