New Italian deli Capo at 715 Florida is awesome; go there


The other day I was running errands and noticed a new deli called Capo at 715 Florida Ave NW. I was hungry so I stopped in, and I'm glad I did -- it's awesome. They have lots of traditional Italian sandwiches plus pre-made things like ziti and lasagna, various kinds of pasta salad, as well as sweets like canolis and containers of cookie butter and ambrosia, plus cheese, bread and meat for sale.

I got the sandwich called the Capo with sopressata, mortadella and provolone -- big piles of the meat, which was delicious, plus the usual lettuce, tomato, onion and oil. The "small" is $8.95, but it was massive, while the large is $13. It must be enormous. The bread is good too, hard and crunchy (in a good way) with sesame seeds. I bought a loaf and took it home too.

 Here's the full menu, and there are daily specials, which I think the Capo was.

There's also a backroom bar and lounge area but I haven't checked that out.

They don't have coffee but have other drinks and such too. I definitely recommend it.
