&Pizza Signs 10 Year Lease on U Street, Opening in May

1250 U Street, NW

Back in Dec. 2012 we learned H &Pizza would be opening a second location in the current Quiznos outside the U Street metro. Now comes word of an opening date – May – and a press release:

The Atlas District’s popular quick-casual pizzeria restaurant concept H &pizza is making its way to U Street. EastBanc, Inc. and Jamestown announced today that owners Steve Salis and Michael Lastoria have signed a ten-year lease to occupy the 1,300 square foot retail space at 1250 U Street, NW. Using the catchy title from its H Street counterpart, the new location is simply called &pizza and will replace the current occupant, Quiznos, immediately to prepare for the necessary build-out and renovations, with a grand opening slated for mid May. Gary Taubin of Streetsense represented U & Pizza in the deal.
Last April, EastBanc and Jamestown expanded their retail portfolio into the U Street corridor with the purchase of 1250 U Street, NW – an office and retail building located directly above the U Street/Cardozo Metro station on the green and yellow lines.

Last summer, H &pizza opened its first location in the H Street Atlas District with great success. Soon, U Street pizza lovers can walk up to &pizza’s counter and choose from traditional, whole-wheat or nine-grain dough with five types of house made sauces and whole-milk mozzarella, freshly prepared daily. Customers can then decorate their pizza pies with a wide range of fresh, locally sourced ingredients compatible with any dietary need. Pizzas are topped and then blast-fired in &pizza’s oven, ready to eat in minutes.

“Primed to satisfy cravings, &pizza will deliver an original and authentic pizzeria concept to the lively U Street corridor,” said Philippe Lanier, vice president at EastBanc. “We are impressed with its popularity on H Street and know it will be a huge success in the highly visited U Street neighborhood that includes numerous eclectic restaurants and retailers.”
