As part of my continuing Weekday Lunch series, where I check out local restaurants and food options for lunch during the week, I headed to Lyman's Tavern at 3720 14th Street NW, just south of Quincy.
They used to open at 2 for lunch but have since changed that to opening the bar at 11 and the kitchen at noon, which is great.
I stopped in a bit ago and got a fantastic pressed Cuban sandwich with ham, pulled pork, pickles, peppers and spicy sauce. It's probably one of my favorite sandwiches in the neighborhood so far. I've also had really good pulled pork BBQ sliders with spicy red cabbage there. All sandwiches come with chips and if I recall was about $9 or $10 with tax.
They serve meatball subs
I like the lunch vibe too, it's pretty quiet and relaxed, and on nice days you can sit at the outdoor bar area. And it's always fun to be able to play pinball with lunch. Definitely a good lunch option.
