Sapore Moves Into Former Quizno’s on Pennsylvania Avenue
Artisanal Oils & Vinegars – Pasta – Salts
by Larry Janezich
Sapore Oil & Vinegar has leased the space in the 600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, which formerly housed Quizno’s Subs. Owner Renee Sheilds Farr, awaiting one more city permit, hopes to open the doors on Sunday, March 18. The store will be DC’s first purveyor of fresh, premium extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars, according the Farr.
Sapore (Italian for “taste” or “flavor”) will carry 16 traditional and flavored extra virgin olive oils, 12 basalmic vinegars, a variety of specialty oils and exotic salts, including Himalayan Pink, Fleur del Sel, Indian Black, Hawaiian Red and Wood Smoked. The store will also carry a variety of pastas.
In keeping with the tradition of many European olive oil outlets, customers will be encouraged to sample before they buy.
