More Info on Beef ‘N Bread from owners of Wiseguys Pizza – coming to Chinatown

6th and H Street, NW

Last week a reader wrote in about Beef ‘N Bread coming to Chinatown. It’s now confirmed that it’s coming from the owners of the great Wiseguys pizza.


I spoke with the owner who tells me he hopes to open in about two months if all goes well:

“Beef n Bread is a fast casual down to earth sandwich shop inspired from living in Boston (what pizza is to New Yorkers, Roast beef is to Bostonians) I lived there like 4 years. It’s also inspired from NY and CA. Combined with our unique homemade sauces.”

Given how good the pizza is at Wiseguys – I can’t wait to see how the sandwiches turn out. Stay tuned.

    The line @ Wiseguys on July 4th, wow.

  • Anyone care to inform me how this might differ from other carvery-style delis in the city (maybe more common south of the mall, like Atrium Cafe and Cafe 59)? I don’t mean to sound dismissive, I am just legitimately curious.

  • Wiseguys is amazing and I am very happy that prime spot is getting filled. Great news all around.

  • Yeap, it will be definitely different than any of those places you mentioned.
    Nothing alike about it. I am not saying they are bad at all but it’s just totally different.

    I guarantee that you will be eating more Roast Beef , it will change your thoughts about bland Dry Roast Beef.

    Anyone from New England area?

    All you have to do is search for Roast beef in Boston area on yelp and you will see that: it’s sliced paper thin served hot and rare to med-rare on toasted sesame bun.

    I think good Roast beef can beat good burger any given time if it served right. Not to mention it’s healthier.

    I always said Pizza is not just a pizza and now I am saying Roast Beef is not just a Roast Beef.

    The place will be tiny mostly take out fast casual.

    Thank you.

  • Big in Boston’s northern suburbs and on the North Shore there. Thin sliced hot, served on a hot buttered and toasted onion roll (preferably from Piantidosi’s or Quinzano’s bakeries). Ask for it “three way” (cheese, mayo and BBQ sauce -though I always added onions too, sometimes pickles). If you like pit beef or beef on weck, you’ll love MA style roast beef.
