The revamped Taylor menu

The rigors of opening his first sandwich shop — and then another — forced Taylor Gourmet co-owner Casey Patten to delay adding that Philly staple, the roast pork hoagie, to his menu. But now that the Pattison Avenue sandwich, made with Niman Ranch pork, is a permanent fixture at Taylor, Patten has started riffing on it.

Starting next week, you’ll be able to taste the fruits (and meats) of Patten’s labor. Taylor will roll out three new pork sandwiches (PDF menu), each made without broccoli rabe, the bitter green that some folks love to hate. They are:

  • Washington Avenue: roasted pork and sharp provolone
  • Girard Avenue: roasted pork, sauteed peppers and onions, and sharp provolone
  • Market Street: roasted pork, roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella, and arugula

A more dramatic makeover of the Taylor menu will come this summer, when owners Patten and David Mazza are expected to open their third location in Bethesda.
