Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, founded in Wilmington, DE, and long a favorite of Delaware beach-goers, expands its presence on the East Coast as it opens its second DC-area and first Northern Virginia shop in Rosslyn.
Known for roasting whole turkeys daily and making sandwiches to order, Capriotti’s is being brought to the DC market by local businessman George Vincent, Jr. The 33 year-old Landon School and University of Maryland graduate plans to open a dozen Capriotti’s locations in the region over the next two years.
Hot and cold sub sandwiches in three sizes, sandwiches made to order, a selection of salads and four vegetarian subs, plus a kid’s menu make up the offerings at Capriotti’s. The best-seller, The Bobbie, is known as Vice President Biden’s favorite sandwich because that’s what he ordered when he was the first customer at Capriotti’s at the 18th and M Streets, NW, location in DC. That classic sub, known as “Thanksgiving on a roll” is made with in-house roasted turkey, homemade stuffing, cranberry sauce and a touch of mayo.
