301 Pennsylvania Ave, SE

Thanks to @bryan_in_dc for tweeting us these updated photos of the Pret a Manger coming to the former Cosi space at the corner of 3rd and Pennsylvania Ave, SE.

“Pret A Manger at 3rd and Penn SE looks like it may open any day now. Interior looks done – even cash registers are installed. about half a dozen workers inside, too, so obviously actively trying to finish it up.”

    Also, Pret has LOBSTER for summer! Check out their lobster roll and lobster salads.

    • I saw the salad at the 14th St location. There were like 2 small pieces for $10, meh.

      Is it any good? Panera also has had lobster salad — and that’s why I walk past it and get the Metro for a lobster roll at Luke’s.

    Yeah, slightly better than previous mediocre chain that occupied same spot. So excited.

    Sorry, sorry, having a tough day.

    Pret needs to bring their cheddar and pickle on artisan sandwiches to the US. Otherwise, it’s a lost cause.

  • HillMan

    Another wasted opportunity for the Hill. Overpriced, mediocre sandwiches that most Hill staffers can’t afford. I suppose it’s a perfect complement to We the “Pizza Like Substance” and Precooked Stuff Eatery. And what’s with the depressing color scheme?
