Taylor Gourmet unveiled breakfast sandwiches at their 14th Street location several months ago. These offerings (menu) are now available at all locations on Saturday and Sunday mornings including City Vista.
Earlier this week City Paper contributor Scott Reitz went into great detail investigating the bread sourcing practices of select local restaurants. The focal point of the article was that Taylor Gourmet, who had marketed their authenticity since inception by touting they shipped in Sarcone’s rolls daily, had stopped sourcing bread from the Philadelphia bakery in September. Taylor responded Thursday night on their blog that the move to a local baker was made to reduce their carbon footprint and reliability of supply.
Outdoor seating at Taylor Gourmet’s City Vista location is back.
The outdoor seating first appeared in May for a few weeks before going back into storage. My understanding is Taylor rolled them out after they applied to DCRA but before the permit was granted and an inspector came by and levied a $2500 fine.
