100 Montaditos: Small Sandwiches With Big Flavors

January 30, 2015 12:01 pm

There really are 100 Montaditos—or rather, small sandwiches—on the menu at the Bethesda location of this chain restaurant. These Spanish-inspired sandwiches range from simple and savory to over-the-top sweet sandwiches made with chocolate bread.

Order and pay at the counter, and the staff will bring your sandwiches right to you at this casual spot. Many visitors like to come for happy hour on Wednesday, so check times before you head in and you might just score a great deal. Beer and wine are served, and so are pitchers of sangria, perfect for washing down all of those little sandwiches

The lighting is soft, and the ambiance is casual. Several televisions adorn the walls should you want to catch the game. Yelp reviewers note that the dining room fills up quickly, so arrive ahead of peak hours if possible. 100 Montaditos is open daily for lunch and dinner and later on weekends.
