I'm dying to get a 7-foot sub sandwich for my 50th birthday party, coming up. Anywhere in the DC Metro area that makes them? I don't want Subway, Giant, Safeway though... Thanks!

    The Italian Store in Lyon Village (Arlington, VA) sells a 6-foot version. This store is a perennial Chowhound favorite for authentic, delicious subs.

      Thanks - I live near them yet didn't see anything on the menu. Just haven't had a chance to call them yet!

        Click on the link to catering. That's where you'll find the description of both the 3-foot and 6-foot submarines.

          Thanks again, Indy - I looked, but must have been overcome by hunger & obsessiveness! Gonna get me one of those! Best, F.

      In MD, I'd try Marchone's or Snider's.

        Found Marchones online - looks like a great shop. I'll have to ask them how well they think it would travel (Arlington). Thank you, Mr. B!

          Definitely Marchone's over Sniders for the sanwich (although both places are great for different things), but with oil I don't think a Marchone's would travel well to Arlington. If the Italian Store offers what you need, they'll do a great job.

            Thanks also, repete - the oil's one of my fave parts of the whole thing (ditto the shredded iceberg, what can I say) - I'll try that one when I'm in the neighborhood.
