D.C.’s most essential dishes of 2016
Bub’s Italian Hoagie at Bub and Pop’s. (Deb Lindsey for The Washington Post)
Bub’s Italian Hoagie at Bub and Pop’s
Selected by Kyle Bailey, executive chef of Birch & Barley and the Arsenal
For Bailey, there is no better sandwich in the District than the Italian hoagie at Bub and Pop’s. The bread makes the difference, he wrote: It holds its own in a sandwich stacked with prosciutto, capicola, pepperoni, salami and provolone. And there are cheffy touches, too: house-made mayo; a relish made with hot pepper, sweet pepper and onion; a top-secret vinaigrette; and a hearty but non-traditional shaving of Pecorino Romano. “The meat-cheese-fixins’ ratio,” Bailey wrote, “is always on point.”
1815 M St. NW. www.bubandpops.com. $10 for a half sandwich; $18 for a whole.
~As teenagers in South Philadelphia, Mae & Irv (Bub and Pop) Wagner fell in love and married in their early 20s. They both loved delicious home-style food, especially the delicacies of the 9th Street Italian Market. When Pop returned from WWII - a decorated hero - they bought a small corner grocery/deli in West Philly (photo now hangs in the restaurant) and created their own style Italian Hoagie and Braised Beef Brisket sandwiches. Almost 60 years later these sandwiches are the inspiration for our menu as their grandson Jonathan reinvents these classics.
