“The namesake Fight Club Sandwich/ Photo Credit- Maya Fiellin”

From a press release:

“Chef Andrew Markert, the fearless leader behind Beuchert’s Saloon, is sending the Capitol Hill restaurant “on vacation for a while” beginning on August 16th and Fight Club will take over on August 19th, serving his off-the-wall but totally on-point sandwiches, snacks and boozy punches. Fight Club will sling Markert’s anything-but-traditional take on classic sandwiches and his personal favorite snacks paired with whimsical punches dreamed up by beverage director Mackenzie Conway. Fight Club will offer carry out, delivery and fast casual service with outdoor seating at its Capitol Hill home base. Read More

Thanks to Jess and Luke for sending word:

Taylor Gourmet closed their shops back in September 2018. In April Washingtonian reported:

“Taylor Gourmet’s assets–including trademarks, customer email lists, social media and domain names, and recipes–were acquired in March by a company called Source Cuisine, headed by Steve Kalifa, who works in real estate development and health care consulting. Kalifa beat out bids from fast-casual chain Cosi and Taylor Gourmet founder Casey Patten in a bankruptcy auction for the brand. Kalifa spent around $260,000 for the assets and says he has raised around $2.5 million to begin resurrecting the business.”

Stay tuned for exact opening dates – and taste tests to see how they match up to the original!

14th and W Street, NW

Dan reports:

“I went to Panino Gourmet Sunday and all of the pumps/fill-up areas at the Valero were ripped out of the ground and were gone; some temporary fencing was erected where they had been. Fearing for the future of Panino I asked if they knew what was going on and they conveyed the message that the building would probably be torn down soon and with it Panino. Sad news that I hope somehow isn’t true.” Read More
