One of the fastest growing restaurant chains in DC has quite a bit of influence from the city’s neighbor to the north: Philadelphia. The city's cheesesteaks may get all the press, but Philadelphians also love heading to their local sub shop to have a roast pork sandwich, gyro wrap, or Italian sub. At Taylor Gourmet, residents at Yale West can find the same kinds of Philadelphia subs and cheesesteaks for very affordable prices.
Taylor Gourmet takes its inspiration from those Philly sandwich shops, offering top quality ingredients, freshly baked bread, and friendly service. The restaurant’s emphasis on quality and freshness means that the kitchen roasts all of its meat in-house daily, and it even makes small batches of sauces several times each day. Regular customers pour in during the lunchtime rush to order sandwiches named after Philly streets, including the popular Vine made with chicken cutlet, prosciutto and pesto, and the Callowhill meatball sub.
While it may not seem like a vegetarian-friendly spot, Taylor Gourmet also offers fried risotto balls and crispy falafel that veggie diners love.
