In the mid-Atlantic, 3 sandwiches go head-to-head for a chance to be the regional champ. The second of these is the chicken club sandwich from the W Hotel. Get the facts on this contender and the recipe so you can make it at home.

Chicken Club Sandwich

Where to Find It:
W Hotel
515 15th Street NW
Washington,DC 20004

Built in 1917, this hotel was the closest neighbor to the White House. Everyone from presidents to celebrities to CEOs are known to stay here. This hotel was where Elvis secretly met with President Nixon, the presidents' Thanksgiving turkeys waited before being pardoned, and where The Godfather Part II was shot.

BITE Score Rating:

B- Bread is golden brown; really moist and delicious
I – It’s not just sliced chicken breast; it’s chicken breast that is rich, lush and full of levels of flavor
T- Most club sandwiches don’t have an egg or avocado, so the taste is unique
E – You would never know about this sandwich if you didn’t have a room here. You can have it on your own terms.
