Pizzeria Vetri D.C.
June 2016

Marc Vetri and his team are excited to open the 4th location of Pizzeria Vetri, dedicated to the fine art of authentic Italian pizza making, in Washington, D.C. this June. After successfully opening 2 locations in Vetri’s home base of Philadelphia, along with their latest location in Austin, Texas, Pizzeria Vetri D.C will feature an expansive selection of seasonal, wood-fired pies in a casual, comfortable setting. From the classic Margherita and rotating Pizza al Taglio, to cult favorites like the Rotolo, a crispy pinwheel of pizza dough filled with ricotta and mortadella topped with pistachio pesto, fresh salads and dolci offerings, all ingredients are made in house daily using only the finest ingredients. James Beard Award-winning Chef Marc Vetri and his team are excited to bring the latest iteration of Pizzeria Vetri to the nation’s capital this summer.”

Washington Business Journal reports that it’ll be a Pie 360:

“The Baltimore-based pizza joint will seat seven on the first floor, six on the mezzanine, 16 on the second floor and 20 in an outdoor cafe.”

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.”

They’ll be located right next door to Shouk the Fast Casual Mediterranean spot coming in the spring.
