To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has plague" or "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of deli eats and extras at Chiocca's Downstairs Deli and Bar, located in the Museum District on North Belmont Avenue.
A quaint subterranean sub shop, Chiocca's Downstairs Deli and Bar slathers more than 57 years of dedicated service onto each item served. Using only the finest Thumann's deli meats and cheeses, the chefs prep masterful hometown subs, available cold, toasted, or grilled. The Beast Feast is a carnivorous orchestration of roast beef, pastrami, swiss, provolone, veggies, and Italian dressing ($8.40), and the Meatless provides an herbivorous arrangement of provolone, swiss, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, lettuce, tomato, and flavor-fusing Italian dressing ($7). Non-elongated edibles include white, rye, multigrain, or onion roll sandwichings of Reuben goodness ($8.25), grilled mesquite chicken breast ($7.25), and classic grilled cheese ($4.50), all of which pair properly with extras such as soup by the cup ($4) or coleslaw by the heaping spoonful ($2.50).
In between bites, diners can enjoy the conversational atmosphere at Chiocca's, which, on Sundays, is known to bustle with cheers and jeers of Redskins fandom. Stare intently at the flat-screen TV, chew thoroughly on your sandwich, and depart with a renewed appreciation for meat, cheese, and cheese plus meat—all three of the food Venn diagram's regions.
This Groupon is valid for dine-in only.
