The Blue Iguana in Fair Lakes had been serving Hot Browns for many years. I haven't been there since the ownership change, but according to the menus now posted on their website, the Hot Brown is gone. :(

The better of the two items ordered was the Kentucky Hot Brown ($14.75), a regional sandwich (that I haven't seen in the DC area) with turkey breast, several generous strips of Benton's bacon, grilled tomato, and mornay sauce, served closed-faced (this is traditionally open-faced) on "toasted brioche" which Matt astutely recognized as "French toast" which is what it was. Highlighted by the piping hot mornay sauce, this was a natural topping for the turkey, and was a very satisfying sandwich - knife-and-fork all the way.
