Skillet sandwiches pop-up at Black Whiskey

The great cauliflower wars of 14th Street have another combatant: the new Skillet sandwich pop-up, which began today at Black Whiskey. Skillet is owned by Peter He of People's Bao in Silver Spring.

Skillet's menu, below, gives you your choice of protein -- steak, duck, chicken, roasted pork, and yes, cauliflower -- and three types of topping blends, all served on Lyon Bakery bread. Or you can pick from a menu of combinations: Our taste testers were big fans of the "Dark & Stormy," a sandwich with pork, onion marmalade and arugula, and we liked the rich bourbon marinade on the steak. The PB&J with Nutella is a sweet option, but the cauliflower sandwich, alas, is bested by Mike Isabella's from G Sandwich, which made our list of 40 Eats this year.

Todd Ciuba, one of the partners at Black Whiskey, said the pop-up will continue indefinitely.

Black Whiskey, 1410 14th St. NW. 202-800-8130. Pop-up hours: 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.
