The guys behind Taylor Gourmet are taking over the vacant building once home to Mid City Deli at 14th and P streets NW. No word yet as to whether they will open another a Taylor Gourmet or something different. They already have a hoagie shop about five blocks away at 1910 14th St. NW.

“We’re not ready to discuss any other details,” Taylor Gourmet co-owner Casey Patten tells Y&H.  Co-owner David Mazza recently registered an LLC for “Sauced 1418 14th.”

The restaurant group seems to be in rapid expansion mode lately, with new Taylor Gourmet locations coming to Merrifield, Va., Penn Quarter, and 1750 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. Meanwhile, their cheesesteak spot Taylor Charles Steak & Ice is scheduled to open this month.
