Jetties is only open from 11am to 3pm, but it still deserves a plaque for the service it’s done for lunch in Foggy. You’ll find both the GW and lobbyist crowd here during the week for excellent sandwiches, salads, soups. There are a few tables to eat at here, but you’ll probably want to take your sandwich to-go (preferably not back to the office). We love them most for the Nobadeer, their year-round Thanksgiving sandwich featuring roast turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce on sourdough.
