The COVID-19 pandemic has spiked demand for comfort food and takeout-friendly items, which offers some reasoning behind a wave of new breakfast sandwiches that have arrived in D.C. over the past couple months. As chefs and restaurateurs experiment with service formats, grab-and-go markets, and pop-ups, egg sandwiches are cropping up everywhere from a hotel coffee counter in Adams Morgan to a Michelin-rated fine dining venue in Shaw, a new gourmet market in Ivy City, a fast-casual Chinese-Korean place in Capitol Hill, a Puerto Rican cafe in Navy Yard, and the new virtual food hall in Glover Park. Here’s a look at 28 options for breakfast sandwiches that features a handful of classics mixed in with all the newcomers.
