Pizzeria Vetri D.C.
June 2016

Marc Vetri and his team are excited to open the 4th location of Pizzeria Vetri, dedicated to the fine art of authentic Italian pizza making, in Washington, D.C. this June. After successfully opening 2 locations in Vetri’s home base of Philadelphia, along with their latest location in Austin, Texas, Pizzeria Vetri D.C will feature an expansive selection of seasonal, wood-fired pies in a casual, comfortable setting. From the classic Margherita and rotating Pizza al Taglio, to cult favorites like the Rotolo, a crispy pinwheel of pizza dough filled with ricotta and mortadella topped with pistachio pesto, fresh salads and dolci offerings, all ingredients are made in house daily using only the finest ingredients. James Beard Award-winning Chef Marc Vetri and his team are excited to bring the latest iteration of Pizzeria Vetri to the nation’s capital this summer.”

    Frankly, I think we have enough “authentic-style” brick oven pizza places around town, both good and bad. What we need are more decent places with NY- and Chicago-style pizza.

      Actually, what we need is anything that’s better than &pizza or those crappy chains from the South.

      • Philippe Lecheval

        Beyond Mellow Mushroom, what chains are you talking about?

        • MarkQ

          Perhaps Fuel, which comes from Charlotte?

  • 7thStTechGuy

    Isnt Piola like a block and a half from there?

      Yep. And decent if not unremarkable pizza. Good HH too.

  • Important to note this about Vetri: http://www.eater.com/2015/11/16/9744242/marc-vetri-restaurants-sold-urban-outfitters (but he is a huge presence in Philly and his food foundation is excellent)

    • Philippe Lecheval

      Urban Outfitters does an outstanding job of convincing young people to buy cheap junk at ridiculous prices. Most of the newer restaurants and bars in DC are basically doing the same thing, only with food and cocktails instead of ashtrays and record players.

        Ha! *end scene*

  • JNo

    I am excited for this. Piola isn’t all that great and the atmosphere is as inviting as a construction site. After Posto closing this will be a welcome and closer addition.
