1348 H Street, NE

Back in October 2012 we first learned Red Rocks Pizzeria would be opening up a location on H Street. This will be their fourth location following one in Columbia Heights, Old Town Alexandria and Arlington. The H Street menu will resemble this one. They are currently finishing up permitting issues but if all goes well they should be able to open in 3-4 weeks. I was able to take a tour of the space and it is not only huge but beautiful. The first floor is dominated by a huge bar:

will have 20 beers on tap

And the space is flooded with light because of the roof:

And the roof is retractable! Lots more photos after the jump.

  • Almost time for a pizza moratorium on H Street.

  • Looks awesome. Can’t wait.

  • Hopefully they can stay afloat until H St. can support a spot of this size

    if they and smith commons can stay alfoat until the glory days they will be GOOD

    • seems to me every place I go to on H street is packed, it will be nice to have a place you can breathe

      • Weekends yes, they dont see the type of weekly business U st, eastern mkt etc see

        once people start filling out these new appt buildings torwards the botton of H st and more people move around they will be good

        ive been around for a little more than 2 years now and have seen a steady increase of the neighborhoods population over time. that hasnt slowed a bit yet

  • Can’t wait.

  • this is pretty cool. the place doesn’t look all that unique, but fortunately i love this look!
    watching h street coming back to life and seeing it grow has been beautiful.

  • Wow. I’m H &pizza for life but I’ll be happy to grab a beer here if it’s as open and airy as the pics make it seem.

  • Isn’t anyone going to complain about the tile effect on the bay windows looking like the tiles commonly installed above counters in renovated houses?

  • This place looks great, but the pizza’s kind of boring (never was a rabid fan of the classics!). I think I’ll stick with H &pizza … but may slip in here for a beer or 12.

  • Still think Redrocks is the best pizza EVER. Beats Matchbox, 2Amys, Comet, and Sette Osteria head-to-head and any day of the week PERIOD. Can’t wait!

    I’ve only been to the Old Town location and both pizzas were a soggy, floppy mess. I’ll continue giving my business to H&Pizza but I’m always glad to see more places opening up in my neighborhood, regardless of whether I go there or not.
