Lunch Grill at Galileo makes it into Frommer's Budget Travel mag

In the feature "Where Foodies Love To Eat" (around the world, not just US) in the September issue, with input from "folks who cook, sell and write about 4-star cuisine," Phyl Richman herself has 1 entry for DC:

"The Best Cannoli on the East Coast. One of the most upscale restaurants in town, Galileo, has a bargain lunch in the lounge. If you see the charcoal grill out front, it means that they're grilling sandwiches in the back. The best is the pork sandwich. It's $5 for a huge one with a green sauce and fried onions. Also, they have the best cannoli on the East Coast for $2.50 (price is $3 now - LooLoo). You'll see limousines sitting outside waiting for someone who's gone in to get his lunch."

(there's a photo of Roberto at the grill with one of his employees)

I have indulged in this grill a few times at lunch (I'm on the email list) tho I like the sausage sandwich a little more than the pork. Wish I could visit more often, but my office is waaaay over at 11th & L (altho the new DC Circulator Bus has diminished the 20 min. walk each way. I enjoyed the excercise but I only have 1 hr for lunch!)

Chowhounds can say what they will about the rest of Galileo, but I am very grateful that Roberto opens this option to downtown workers like me who are sick of the same old sandwich shops & chains but don't have the bucks to shell out for $15 entrees elsewhere.

Grazie for the Grill, Roberto!
