Any great places for pannini in D.C.? Will probably be splitting time between the mall area and conference center.

    Don't know your exact location because of the conference center thing, but Dicky's at 17th and I St. NW makes good paninis.

      Thank you both! We'll be staying at the Washington Plaza, and I think I heard there is not much to eat around there. So I am envisioning having to take the metro from the conference center to eat or schedule time when touring the sites. Please correct me if this is not true.

      I know this seems random, but there is a restaurant/cafe called Cups in the basement between Dirksen and Russell on the Senate side of the Hill that makes great panninis. There is one with tomato, pesto, and mozzarella on a sourdough bread. It's quite good (plus Cups makes a good mocha.)
