Thanks to a reader for sending an update on Al Forno Pizza coming to 3201 New Mexico Avenue, NW by Chef Geoff’s. It will now be called La Forchetta. The reader writes:

“Apparently someone claimed they were already using Il Forno as a name.

The ANC struck a deal on liquor permit, and they’re supposed to open in March.”

    Apparently they are really bad at selecting names. There is a restaurant named La Fourechette in AdMo Similar enough spelling that it will cause confusion, IMHO…

    • ew

      Similar, because they both mean fork in a Romance language :P

    • I don’t think anyone will confuse the two restaurants. The locations couldn’t be more different.

    • ah

      Maybe not bad, but just really unimaginative. From Baked to The Fork.

    There’s a New Mexico Avenue?

      yeah, up by AU. Unless you live up there or go/went to AU, there aren’t a ton of reasons to know where it is.

      There is an avenue (or street) for every state in the union.

        Or, in Ohio’s case, a drive.
