Opening: Taylor Gourmet

Fresh and delicious is the name of the game at Taylor Gourmet. Owners, Casey Patton and David Mazza are excited to announce the opening of their newest restaurant located in the Mosaic District in Merrifield, Va. In celebration of this momentous Virginia opening, they'll be giving away FREE hoagies on Monday, February 4, 2013 from 11:00am - 2:00pm and 6:00pm - 9:00pm (only at the Mosaic location).

Unsatisfied in their DC search for an authentic Italian style hoagie, Philly natives, Patton and Mazza opened their first restaurant in 2008 in DC's "Atlas District" (H & 12th Street). Soon to be located in eight locations throughout the DC metro area, Taylor Gourmet is known for its healthy portions, fresh ingredients and industrialized hip style.

Girard Avenue ~ Roasted Pork,
Peppers, Onions and Sharp Provolone
Guest favorites include their spicy Callowhill meatballs, Risotto Balls and of course, the 9th Street Italian.  If you're a pork fan, they also have several hoagies that star their fabulous well-seasoned roasted pork.

Sample Size Servings of the
Franklin Square Salad ~ Arugula,
Pastina, Cannellini Beans,
Crispy Proscuitto, Walnuts and
Parmesan Cheese
Vegetarian options include the Tasker Street (arugula, sharp provolone, parmesan, fresh mozzarella and goat cheese) and the Wilson Park salad (arugula, pastina, dried cranberries, candied almonds and gorgonzola) to name a few.

Breakfast is served from 8:00 am - 11:00 am; and with amazing breakfast hoagies, you may find yourself popping out of bed early in order to rush over to pick up an Aramingo Ave (bacon, sausage, hash browns, eggs, american cheese with beer cheese sauce).

Too cold to get your bones outside, but have a craving that won't quit?  You can always order online and have Taylor deliver to your door!  The delivery minimum is $18.00 and the delivery fee is $2.00.

Taylor's unique interior and exterior industrialized designs feature recycled everyday items that have been utilized as light fixtures and paneling.  In their efforts to go Green, they hired Green Living Consulting (GLC), in order to better fulfill their green mission: "To demonstrate environmental and community stewardship by promoting a more sustainable operation that compliments our quality of service and helps foster social and eco-awareness in the community around us."  This has earned them the ranking of "Bronze" level as a certified green business.  Additionally, their fry oil is recycled with Greenlight Biofuels.
