Eating Lunch in Downtown Bethesda – Taylor Gourmet Deli

August 30, 2012

One of the best things about working in downtown Bethesda is the wide range of lunch options that are available without getting in your car. I’ve Exterior Shot of Taylor Gourmet Deli in Bethesda Marylandtried a lot of different places, but there is always something new available. I will try to start bringing you reviews of some of the places I frequent for lunch. I’ll start it off with Taylor Gourmet Deli.

When Taylor Gourmet Deli first opened in Bethesda, I was very interested in giving it a try. It had an industrial look with open-air walls and buckets hanging from the ceiling. Unfortunately, I wasn’t alone and every time I went there, the line was too long for me to grab something quick and go back to the office. I eventually tried it out and the first thing I noticed was that the bread used for the sandwiches was great. Once in awhile I would go over and grab a cold sandwich and they were good, but I wasn’t raving about Taylor to anyone.

Then it happened.

With all the choices available, it is extremely rare that I would eat lunch at the same place two days in a row. In fact, I don’t think it’s ever happened. But earlier this week I was really hungry and I wanted something Taylor Gourmet Deli Order Takersdifferent and I went to Taylor and tried the Pattison Avenue. It is one of their hot sandwiches. It’s made with hot roasted pork, broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. I ordered the 12″ sandwich on their regular bread and took it to go. It was wonderful. I must admit I ate the first 6″ half quickly and probably would have stopped at 7 or 8 inches, but the hot broccoli rabe was really good and made me feel like I was eating my vegetables so I ate it all.

The next day it was beautiful out in Bethesda and I found myself heading back to Taylor for another hot sandwich. This time I tried their Delaware Avenue which is one of their hot chicken cutlet sandwiches. This one includes roasted red peppers, red onion and gorgonzola. I took my 6″ Delaware Avenue to go and sat at the picnic tables outside. It was also delicious. That great bread and the warm cheese. Yum!

So, what I didn’t know when I initially visited Taylor was that it’s the hot sandwiches that are the most amazing. But as a Jersey girl, I know it all starts with the bread.

If you would like to visit Taylor Gourmet Deli in Bethesda, the address is 7280 Woodmont Avenue, Bethesda, MD and they just a short walk from the Bethesda Metro.

    Thanks for writing about this great Bethesda deli! I love their veggie subs and you are right about the bread-good stuff!

  2. Vic – Have you tried the roasted cauliflower sandwich? I think it’s new, but it’s really good. Bettina told me about it and I tried it. You should give it a try.
