One of New York's most ubiquitous sandwich shops is coming to Metro Center. Pret a Manger is like an ATM in Manhattan; you can find one every couple of blocks. They're everywhere. As of today though, there's only one in DC. The existing location is also near the 42 bus line at 1825 I Street NW. Pret a Manger is a British company with stores in the UK, China and the United States.
The new location is at the corner of 11th and F NW, across the street from H&M. I'd always gone there for coffee, but there are some vegan and vegetarian options so I will definitely pay a lunch visit or two to this place. Nice addition to the downtown lunch and sandwich scene. It is scheduled to open in May of this year.
