    what happened to piccante? I haven’t ordered from them in a while, but I actually thought they were one of the delivery joints in the city. Know nothing about the take-away pie and experience, but they made a mean Greek Pizza (although not as good as Astor’s, even though the latter was not open at 3 a.m.) and would even roast fresh garlic on the pizzas.

      “what happened to piccante? I haven’t ordered from them in a while”

      I guess a lot of other people haven’t ordered from them in a while either.

    Well, this was a no-brainer. What better than a generic and likely mediocre ethnic fast food joint to replace a common and middling ethnic fast food joint in Adams Morgan. If the new owner isn’t running a front, I actually feel sorry for the amount of dream-crushing that is about to go down. Maybe, if he or she is lucky, insurance will cover the fire in about 3 months.

      What do you know about the owner running a front?

      People should really consider the consequences of defamation before they post such things.

        I didn’t say the owner was running a front. People should really thoroughly read a comment before posting something in response to it.

        That said, I hope the owner is running a front, because they aren’t going to keep themselves afloat with this half-hearted effort.

          You suggested as much. Not the wisest of comments, I would think. Pro-tip: Take a few seconds and think about your comment before you click on the “post” button.

            Actually he didn’t. He implied that running a front would be the only way to stay in business, because he feels this will be another poorly executed concept. Tip: Saying “Pro-tip” already makes you sound like an idiot, but even more so when your original assertion is invalid.

            Agreed with Justinbc (on both points).

    Isn’t this coming full circle? I think I remember this being a kabob/felafel joint first.
