This sandwich shop in Shaw is highlighted on WTOP.
Looks interesting, was wondering if anyone has tried it?

I also went this weekend, and certainly enjoyed parts of the meal. I really liked the Beirut, delicious grilled lamb with greens, though perhaps just a tad too salty. The Buenos Aires was far less successful, with super-pungent raw onions and light on the beef. I thought the bread was good and was tempted by the range of salads. Also had a chocolate/caramel/berry tart which was respectable. I will definitely be returning and would recommend it to those stuck at the Convention Center.
Tried this place out for lunch this afternoon, and was very pleased. I got the Beirut (steak, tomatoes, brined veggies and hummus). The steak was cooked real well (between medium and medium rare) and juicy and not tough - which was a bit surprising, because a lot of times with faster food the steak will have some gristle. Sandwich was $11, and seemed big, but I actually was a bit hungry after finishing it. My friend got the Saigon and sounded happy with it.
This is a solid place for a sandwich, but a bit hard to find (in the west alley on 9th between N and O). After one trip, I think I'd still opt for Taylor Gourmet, but this place is definitely worth some repeat visits. They apparently have a homemade "Nutter Butter" cookie that is supposed to be very good too.
