The owners of Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, Elliot Spaisman and Jeff Halpern, announce the opening of Satellite Sandwiches, an all-day sandwich and cookie-centric ghost kitchen.
The menu, composed of a variety of Philadelphia-inspired cheesesteaks, comforting sandwiches and sides, plus jumbo made-to-order cookies, is exclusively available for delivery or pre-ordered pick-up at Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken at 1308 G Street NW.
The menu, available here, developed by Chef Chris Kujala from Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, features a selection of classic cheesesteaks including the traditional Philly Classic, a Pizza Steak topped with marinara sauce and fried mushrooms, and a Cheese Steak Hoagie served with lettuce, tomato, mayo, and a pickle. All cheesesteaks are served on a toasted garlic-butter sub roll from Baguette Republic and, depending on customer preference, can be topped with either a smoked gouda cheese sauce or melted provolone.
Other sandwich options include Chicken Parmesan, a grilled lamb Gyro, and Portobello Mushroom “Asteroid,” a vegan-friendly version of Astro’s popular hot chicken offering. Wings, spiced-rubbed steak fries, and a hearty chicken noodle soup round out the all-day menu.
For a sweet ending, Satellite Sandwiches offers 6.5 oz. made-to-order cookies in four flavors: Double Chocolate Chip, Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel, Cake Batter Funfetti, and Pumpkin Snickerdoodle.
A separate, smaller menu of breakfast sandwiches is available for order between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. daily. The trio of early morning offerings include an egg, hash brown, and breakfast sausage stuffed Breakfast Burrito, a Steak and Egg Sandwich, and the BLT&E, a traditional BLT topped with two fried eggs served with chive mayo on a sub roll.
The kitchen will be open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sundays 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Satellite Sandwiches is available for pick-up at Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken only if orders are placed in advance on the website. Walk-up orders are not available at this time.
