Welcome, Sandwich Smackdown-ers! By day three of this carb-filled competition you’re well versed in the process, so we’ll speed through and announce yesterday’s winner: Shawafel swept Stoney’s, claiming more than 64 percent of the votes. Say goodbye to some great grilled cheese.
Today we pit Mike Isabella’s 14th Street sandwich spot, G—coming soon to Nationals Park—against Jeffrey Buben’s WTF (that’s short for Woodward Takeout Food, thank you very much). Both boast killer fried chicken sandwiches, among other delights; we’d happily take down a WTF honey-butter-drizzled chicken biscuit at breakfast and chase it with the Chick Chick for lunch, dressed with cranberry relish and bacon. And for dinner? Isabella’s crispy Parm blanketed with chicken-leg gravy and mozz. Or maybe a roast lamb gyro. Or an Italian cold cut? It’s hard to decide! Anyway, on with the competition; remember that voting ends at 5, so make your choice early.
