A reader reports on new Pie 360 signage:

“Saw this on the way for a walk today. I understand there is one of these in Baltimore.
It’s in the 600 block of K St. west of Shouk.”

Their website says:

“Pie 360 was created to serve delicious food with all fresh ingredients in a fast casual atmosphere. Using the experience & recipes from our Coal Fire Restaurants, we will be able to bring our aged dough, three uniquely flavorful sauces & top it off with our mozzarella cheese made in house daily. We hope you will enjoy the experience of building your personal pizza & salad or choosing from one of our newly created panini’s.”
