Our First Grinder President?

"Let's roll."
Reale's Grocery, Westerly, RI (est. 1915)
As was widely reported, earlier this week President Obama picked up hoagies at a D.C. sandwich shop for his sit down with John Boehner and other congressional leaders. The sandwich shop, Taylor Gourmet, was started by a couple of Philly expats (expenns?) who despaired finding a decent hoagie in D.C. Their menu looks pretty good, if a bit on the high end side. The President reportedly had the "Spruce St. Special" with roast turkey, prosciutto, roasted red peppers, and sharp provolone.

If D.C. can support a chain of Philadelphia-style hoagie shops, is it too much for New York City to support one Westerly-style grinder shop?

  1. That photograph secures my vote for Obama. Wonder what his take on the veggie grinder is? The true test of quality - in a grinder and a president.
