When peeking in the window of the old Blimpie space in Chinatown I happened to spot some architectural plans in the window. Looks like a Zpizza may be coming. Anyone ever heard of them before?
Apparently they’re a chain from California and their Web site says:
zpizza was founded in the art colony of Laguna Beach, California, where creativity and craftsmanship have flourished for almost a century. So it comes as no surprise that our critically acclaimed pizza is a true Laguna original. A passion for great food is why we start with dough made from 100% organic wheat flour prepared fresh every day, hand-thrown and fire-baked until uniquely crisp. Our zest for quality continues when the toppings go on. We combine select ingredients using award-winning skim mozzarella from Wisconsin, certified organic tomato sauce, MSG-free pepperoni, additive-free sausage, and fresh produce. Our gourmet salads and sandwiches are just as delicious.
Anyone ever try one of their northern Virginia locations? Their Web site also confirms a coming soon to Washington DC.
The plans say 799 9th St, NW but the old Blimpie space is actually on H St, NW… More as construction advances
