D.C.’s Taylor Gourmet Featured in Dwell

Taylor is an industrial modern take
on a Philly sub shop.

Nothing in my book beats good design and top notch food. I like when I can combine my two passions.

On Thursday, a friend and I headed to Taylor Gourmet for lunch and found multiple copies of Dwell on the counter of the industrial modern, upscale and green take on a Philadelphia deli. I was glad to see the latest issue because I was still waiting for mine in the mail.

The reason for the Dwells in the deli? The modern mag’s city life issue featuring cool apartments did a spread on the living spaces of Taylor owners David Mazza and Casey Patten. Like the good old days, their living spaces are right above their sandwich shop, which was designed by local firm Grupo7.

See the former bakery, crack house and hair salon transformed here.

A well designed space deserves a well
designed and tasty sandwich.
