Fans of Allandale deli spot Republic of Sandwich should rejoice. Even though shop shuttered last winter, it’s coming back, although in a different form and new name and location. Capitol Sandwich makes its debut tomorrow, Thursday, March 29, as a trailer on 2308 Hancock Drive.
It's safe to expect
the same takes on with what Capitol pegs as Philadelphia-style sandwiches full of of roast beef and pork, pastrami, ham, and vegetarian-friendly ones, too. It’ll also serve up bagels, breakfast tacos, sides, and sodas. Update, March 31: A reader pointed out that Republic co-founder Pete O'Donnell is no longer with Capitol, which means Capitol’s menu isn’t Philadelphia-influenced.
The new Capitol Sandwich will include a covered patio for on-the-spot dining. It shares with gamer haven Pat's Games. Its hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the weekends.
