Jetties is only open from 11am to 3pm, but it still deserves a plaque for the service it’s done for lunch in Foggy. You’ll find both the GW and lobbyist crowd here during the week for excellent sandwiches, salads, soups. There are a few tables to eat at here, but you’ll probably want to take your sandwich to-go (preferably not back to the office). We love them most for the Nobadeer, their year-round Thanksgiving sandwich featuring roast turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce on sourdough.

Foggy Bottom is more than GW students and sandwich shops (although there are a lot of those). Here’s your guide to navigating it.

Rasika West End
Like it’s Penn Quarter counterpart, Rasika West End serves some of the best upscale Indian food in the city.
