From the Atlas District, now to the heart of the U Street neighborhood, &pizza is opening a second District location at 1250 U Street NW, DC on Wednesday June 12th, 2013 directly beside the U Street Metro station. Celebrating their arrival at the center of DC’s historic music scene, the restaurant will host the U Street All Stars, starring: Elijah Jamal Balbed, Reginald Cyntje and JS Williams live on Friday June 14th from 6pm-8pm & Saturday June 15th from 2pm-4pm & 9pm-11pm.
The U street location of &pizza will open daily from 11am to 11pm Sunday – Wednesday, remaining open until 2am Thursday & 3:30am on Friday & Saturday.
The assembly line style of ordering will continue in the new restaurant with patrons choosing between three different crusts (traditional/ whole-wheat/ multigrain), six in-house prepared sauces (Mushroom Truffle/ Spicy Tomato/ Basil Pesto), and six cheese options (House made Mozzarella/ Provolone Blend/ Ricotta). Customers then pick from choice standout toppings ranging from proteins like local farm eggs & soppressata; vegetables such as roasted peppers & artichoke; and “finishes & oils” that include fig marsala & red pepper chili oil. Or, find a favorite from their array of nine pie suggestions like the popular Farmer’s Daughter made with farm eggs, hot sausage, and house made mozzarella.
Committed to creating an ambiance emblematic of the neighborhood’s rich cultural history, &pizza designed a space honoring the community’s legacy with framed black & white photos of local leaders, historic pictures of iconic U Street landmarks, and a large brass ampersand highlighting the significance of jazz music & venues in the U St district.
