This sandwich shop in Shaw is highlighted on WTOP.

Looks interesting, was wondering if anyone has tried it?

    We visited Sundevich for lunch and it was really good. the owners were behind the counter and seemed very nice. The steak sandwich was delish and tender. I didn't like the coleslaw side though.

      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.

        It must have just (like the last day or two) opened... the people who are/will run it, who also own the market next door, Seasonal Harvet, do a great job... really a wonderful find and addition to the 'hood...

            The name of the store is Seasonal Pantry.
