The owners of the best damn place to get a sandwich in a gas station announced their plans to open a second location at 1990 M Street NW. Fast Gourmet quickly became a neighborhood favorite, with the gut-busting Chivito (so bad for you but oh so tasty) and other tasty sandwiches. (Their menu is actually extensive.)
WUSA9 reports the new place will be called ‘TakEatEasy’ and may open as soon as March. Expect a ‘more than sandwiches’ menu, including homemade pastas and a dinner menu. The owner, Manuel Olivera is focused on a ‘relaxed’ atmosphere (word is used 3.5 times in his quotes). The location puts it on M Street near Vidalia, in between Rumors and Hudson.
Be sure to read Tom Hays’ A Visit With the Olivera Brothers at Fast Gourmet. Brothers Manuel and Juan Olivera, natives of Uruguay, are the owners. Full disclosure: Fast Gourmet is a big favorite of the editors here at Borderstan.
