Best Block for Sandwiches
1200 block of 9th Street NW
Like a good man, a good sandwich is hard to find. Should you find yourself near the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, however, that task becomes significantly easier. On the east side of the street, Marjorie Meek-Bradley’s Smoked & Stacked offers intensely beefy pastrami sandwiches as well as smoked chicken, cured salmon, and luscious milk bread rolls. On the opposite side, acclaimed pizza spot All-Purpose fills out its lunch menu with a hearty eggplant sandwich that oozes melted cheese and a crunchy calamari po-boy that’s brightened by a spicy aioli and pickled peppers, while Espita Mezcaleria serves a fried fish torta so refined it makes McDonald’s Filet-o-Fish look like a crime. Take a few more steps up 9th Street and you’ll also pass globally-inspired sandwich shop SUNdeVICH. Even the pickiest eaters will be sated without having to walk more than a few yards.
