Lunch Options for TenleyTown?
Good, Fast, *cringe* inexpensive?
I'm looking forward to Pete's and Z-Burger, but I wonder what else is good in the hinterlands of the Red Line.
Thanks In Advance,
Pretty limited in that area. Right by the Metro, Nisha Thai and Masala Art both have lunch specials. There is also Crisp and Juicy, Guapos, and a little Italian place called Angelico, if you go north from the Metro station--on the East side of Wisconsin.
If you go south on Wisconsin, right before Fannie Mae, there is a sandwich/deli shop called Franklin Grill. They have good sandwiches and salads. There is seating inside. A few doors over, there is Cafe Ole. They have Mediterranean mezza, salads and sandwiches. Prices are a bit higher than Franklin but they have real flatware and dishes. Lunch entree and drink would be about $15.
Masala Art (very close to the metro) and Cafe of India (a few blocks up on Wisconsin) are both excellent in my opinion. I think they both have some kind of lunch special, although I have only been to dinner at those restaurants.
I happen to like Crisp and Juicy for a quick and cheap lunch -- really enjoy their yuca fries.
Krupins or Mortys or whatever it is called now (a little north of the metro on the west side of Wisconsin) is a half decent Jewish deli.
Dancing Crab is a better bar than restaurant. The crabs are not always that fresh. Best food in Tenleytown is Masala Art and Cafe of India for Indian, Le Chat Noir for French and Yosaku for Japanese.
