Little Italy sandwich at Smithsonian

I visited DC recently and liked the Little Italy sandwich they served at both cafeteria and cafe in the American History museum. Anyone have any idea on the contents or recipe?

    They have something called the Semper Fi which may be what you had as it is your basic cold cut sub.

      No, this one is grilled boneless chicken with some kind of marinated vegetables (maybe eggplant, peppers, onions, mushrooms?) and possibly cheese on a crusty bun.

        Sorry - no idea then. And I do not go to the museums during tourist season so I can't offer to stop by and ask them. Guess you will need to call them. Recommend you wait until September when things aren't so crazy over there.

        I believe the Semper Fi is a fistful of beef tartar with a slice of American on top.

        Email the museum (unfortunately the Stars & Stripes Cafe has no direct e-mail address).
