Sometimes — whether it be a quick lunch, a meal on-the-go, or simply to satisfy a craving — a sandwich is truly necessary. D.C. restaurants have been taking sandwiches out of familiar, turkey club territory for years. And now's a great time to sample some of the newest sandwich offerings Washington has on local menus.

Eater presents the sandwich heatmap, a mix of brand-new sandwiches, suddenly-popular offerings (looking at you, Bub & Pop's) and ever-popular meals-between-bread that can be found at new locations.

The jury's still out on what sandwich Guy Fieri sampled at Bub and Pop's during his visit there in mid-October. Did he sample the Italian hoagie or the Bulgarian feta? It's hard to go wrong at this Dupont sandwich joint, but a sure bet is The Real Obama, their spin on a Chicago Italian beef sandwich.

Centrolina

Centrolina features a rotating sandwich special: try Amish chicken salad on Fridays.

DGS Delicatessen

The team behind Sundevich knows its sandwiches, so naturally their new smokehouse has several of them, including a smoked bluefish offering.

Stomping Ground

Copy Link

Biscuits are a focus here, so it's no shock this new coffeehouse in Del Ray can make a solid biscuit sandwich. The avocado smash, featuring poached eggs, avocado and greens, makes for a good vegetarian option.

Edward Lee's all dark meat fried chicken is combined with pimento cheese, remoulade and Jezebel sauce on the new restaurant's lunch menu.
