809 Upshur Street, NW

Let’s add one more to the list of spectacular renovations – Timber Pizza Co.. If all goes well stay tuned for an opening next week. Check out this pizza oven porn:


The rest of the space turned out pretty sweet too:

    I love how they’ve done the inside. Very cool and can’t wait to check it out.

    Awesome job, guys. I appreciate the investment that they’ve made in the neighborhood. We’ll be frequent patrons. Anyone know if they’ll have carry-out pizza?

  • Patrick

    This spot looks dope… can’t wait to indulge in some ZAA there… Oh le noi!

  • tom

    Looks cool, but it doesn’t look like there’s a whole lot of space for people to sit. Is it really small or do the pictures just make it look that way? I too am curious if they’ll do carry-out (especially if it’s as small as it looks).

      When I walked past last night and peeked inside, that was my first impression too. I’m guessing the seating capacity of 15-20 inside at the most, including the bar seating? I hope there’s a patio out back and I would guess they’ll have sidewalk seating in front.

      It did look awesome though. And that copper oven – gorgeous!

      The ANC (I am a Commissioner) approved a resolution supporting two sidewalk tables.

    Any word on what type of pizza? More trendy, thin crackery crust or will it dare to be different?

      The word you’re looking for is “Neapolitan”. This clearly isn’t your cup of tea – try Manny and Olga’s down the street.

        You can be a fan of good pizza and not be a fan of Neapolitan pizza, which too often winds up with a crust that resembles soup in the middle of the pizza. But kudos on the sick burn.

          Try All Purpose or Bacio’s.

    • We are going to offer carry-out!

        YES!!!! this was my question. We are in desperate need of good pizza in the area. can’t wait.

      • EnPetworth

        We live 4 houses down and are so excited for you guys to open. Welcome to the neighborhood!

        Awesome re: carry out TPC! And thanks for being open for lunch too.

    Was this a church previously?

  • JB

    You sound like a jewel of a neighbor.

      I love too-cool-for-kids hipsters who forget that they were once kids.

        “too-cool-for-kids hipster”
        That’s certainly not the OP above. He’s a cantankerous older man who seems to troll just about everything. It’s best to completely ignore him – eventually he’ll get the hint and move back to trolling WTOP, the Post, or something similarly appropriate.

  • tacopuss

    Aw, someone needs a hug. What’s funny is that the staff at the “less child-friendly places” have expressly told myself and other parents that they very much welcome kids. Maybe the only thing not child-friendly here is you?

    • Anon

      How about a hug instead?

    • Childless hipster


  • Eric

    The only downside about this place is how fat I’m going to get!
