D.C. locals can soon try a whole lot of small sandwiches at The Yards’ Boilermaker Shops. This fall, 100 Montaditos will serve their traditional Spanish mini-sandwiches by the Washington Navy Yard, Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner David Garber confirmed on Twitter.
This sandwich joint, which first opened in Spain’s Islantilla in 2000, now has more than 250 locations across the world, including Europe, Mexico, Colombia, and the U.S. Their new location at the Boilermaker Shops is 2,500 square ft. and will have outdoor seating.
This will not be the only 100 Montaditos in the D.C. area. Back in October, the chain announced that they will open a new location at 4922 Elm Street in Bethesda, Maryland, where restaurant Green Papaya used to be. However, they delayed their intended May opening, according to Bethesda Now, and the restaurant does not have a confirmed opening date. “We do not have a solid date set, as things can change and hold back the opening,” they told The Daily Meal.
Another 100 Montaditos will also open in Rossyln, Virginia, according to Washington Business Journal. The 2,940 square foot restaurant will open in the fall.
Customers can choose from a hundred montaditos, Spanish for small sandwiches (hence the restaurant’s name). The selection includes savory sandwiches such as Serrano ham and olive oil, and sweet sandwiches such as chocolate bread with heavy cream and ice cream bites. The menu also includes $5 tapas, brava potato fries, salads, and Spanish alcoholic mixers, beer, wines, and more.
The montaditos, which are priced from $1.00 to $2.50, will probably sell like hotcakes once the three locations open.
