Out to Lunch: Bryan Voltaggio's Lunchbox in Chevy ChaseBy Rina Rapuano
July 16, 2014
You may have heard that local celebrity chef Bryan Voltaggio reopened his shuttered Frederick enterprise, Lunchbox, here in Chevy Chase Pavilion this Monday. It’s a chef’s take on fast-casual, so you’ll find things like a Reuben with seaweed sauerkraut and a sandwich sporting scallion-bacon jam. Here’s what else you can expect from his newest spot in the same shopping center as Range and Aggio:
Perfect For: Bryan Voltaggio fans and Top Chef stalkers
Dish You'll Gush Over: The Eastern Shore, a satisfying corn and crab chowder
Best Seat: It’s fast-casual, small and busy during lunch hour, so whatever seat you can get.
Be Wary Of: The fact that they are still working out the kinks. It’s fairly chaotic in there, the soft-serve machine wasn’t working and the sandwiches looked a bit beaten up (and skimpy on the meat) when unwrapped.
Good to Know: Street parking is tough in this neighborhood, and the parking garage will set you back $5 (and is pretty packed, as well). It’s really best to Metro here.
