upper crust
1301 U Street, NW

Thanks to a tipster for sending word that Upper Crust Pizzeria is coming to 1301 U Street, NW in the former U Sushi space which moved inside neighboring Sala Thai back in July. Upper Crust Pizzeria briefly had a downtown location but closed after a year due to some bankruptcy issues. Apparently that’s been worked out – their website says:

“Since its inception in 2001, The Upper Crust Pizzeria has been serving award-winning pizza to Boston-area residents craving something delicious and extraordinary. In January 2013, new owners and management expanded upon the original concept: use fresh ingredients in traditional and unexpected ways on top of a flavorful crust. The menu has grown from classic combos to more unique and daring pairings, including pizzas like The Uncommon, The Fenway, Cameron’s BBQ and more. Any pizza can be made white (without tomato sauce) or red (without cheese) and is available on our traditional, whole wheat or gluten-free crust.

From our original storefront on Beacon Hill’s historic Charles Street, to any of our other metro area and suburban locations, customers can grab takeout, get delivery or choose to dine in. Our award-winning architectural spaces include open kitchens, pizza pan-decorated ceilings and high-definition flat screens, all adding up to deliver a truly unique experience that can only be described as Upper Crust.”
