Thanks to a reader for sending the update on Pie360. Anyone happen to take a taste today? What’s the early word?

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.

Check out their menu here.

In more curious pizza news – a reader reports:

“Any idea what happened to this &pizza? Never seen a closure sign quite so uninformative.”

I’ve sent an email to &pizza and will update if they’re able to share more. This &pizza opened up in the former Current Sushi space back in April 2015.

Update: (next time maybe I should check twitter…head smack) thanks to a reader for passing on from their twitter account:

“Small plumbing issue at Dupont today. Working to fix it ASAP and we’ll holler when we’re back up and running. Until then, hit up K Street.”

Dupont is back up and running. Come ‘n get it.

From an email:

&pizza, the unconventional collection of local pizza shops known for their craft pizza, housemade sodas and ampersand-tattooed employees, will open its first shop in Chinatown at 705 H St NW this fall.

The new store will launch&BAR, the brand’s new curated beverage concept, with three signature easy-drinking cocktails made with &pizza’s housemade craft sodas and &TEA. &WINE and DC Brau beer and refreshing non-alcoholic versions of &SODA and &TEA will also be available. (more…)

Right across the street from Nats Park:

This is really terrible news for Mount Pleasant. Thanks to everyone who sent emails last night:

“This was just posted on their Facebook account and is terrible news.”

Radius Pizza first closed back in July of 2012 and then reopened under new management in October of that year. Updates when we learn what becomes of the space.
