What's the 2nd best sandwich place in DC?

I have to nominate West Wing Cafe now. A little Korean run joint on 12th st between Penn and E across from the Covington Burling Building. Great simple homemade soups (i.e. chicken noodle soup whose broth is clear not yellow), awesome seven grain bread, boar's head meat, turkey pastrami reubens (yum) and good salads too. Try their grilled chicken tomato soup. It looks like kitchen sink soup but I buy it by the threefuls. Oh, and they don't charge you Phillips Cafe prices.

DC - Metro Center Favorite Take-Out?


It is now 2008 and I came upon your post while looking for a listing of National Press Club foodcourt places.

The Cowgirl Creamery on 919 F makes really good sandwiches and white bean salads. Teaism on 400 8th Street makes a healthy modified banh mi with awesome hot mayo. On Thursdays after 3pm there is also the Farmer's Market on 8th.
