1250 9th Street, NW looking north towards N Street

Last week we learned that All Purpose Pizza was hiring and would likely be opening soon. Turns out to be very soon – if all goes well they should be open early next week. I was able to peek inside and while the space was finished yet, you can get a good feel of how things are turning out. This is the new spot from the owners of Red Hen and Boundary Stone. Updates when we have an exact opening date.



More photos after the jump.

    LOVE the tile-, stone-, and wood-work. Very excited for this to open!

    Looks like they’ve covered Step 1 to making good pizza:
    A PIZZA OVEN!!!!

    Every place in DC that does Brick Oven or a Conveyor system should take notes.

    So what’s the catch? This might be the first “normal” restaurant to open in Shaw….sigh. Hope they take reservations….

    I love that tile work — gorgeous!

    Exciting for this area! Espita next door is DELICIOUS. Also, a bakery should be opening on the other side of APP within the next few months.

      I just noticed they have a bar. That’s normal bar #2 in the 9th and N street area. Everything in Blagden is too fancy.

    Great — another LOUD restaurant (just like Espita). There’s not a soft surface in the entire restaurant! I love Red Hen, Sebastian and others, but they all need to realize that a restaurant can have buzz and atmosphere without damaging everyone’s eardrums.
