Unlike a sand witch, a sandwich doesn't have the power to turn men into sand and sand into poisoned glass. Let a sandwich cast a devastating spell on hunger pains with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean fare at Cafe Tu-O-Tu in Georgetown. Cafe Tu-O-Tu serves fresh salads, soups, and paninis in a café setting bedecked with warm European touches. Unlike most scratch-and-sniff fantasy novels, savory contents such as fresh mozzarella, tomato, and basil pesto spread rest within the ciabatta bread bookends of the chicken caprese ($7.95). The menu features more than a dozen salad options, including the mango salad, topped with parmesan and dried mangos ($8.50), and the olive salad, an homage to the flavors of the Mediterranean, adorned with green and black olives, mozzarella balls, and sundried tomatoes ($7.85). Perk up and wash it all down with a strong Turkish coffee ($2.39).
- Better than your average sandwich shop, Tu-o-tu is a place to keep in mind when you're in the neighborhood. Especially at this time of year, it's a comfortable, tasty spot to recharge after a few hours of holiday shopping. – Julia Beizer, Washington Post
- Great sandwich place. Paninis are fresh and flavorful. We had the kofte and parisienne paninis. Not your typical turkey with swiss or roast beef with cheddar. Some creativity. Service is great. Good prices. Like the outdoor seating. Feels very homey. – Salmaan T., Yelp
