Union Market, Adams Morgan, Cleveland Park and now Downtown too! The pizzeria is coming to the briefly open Black Iron space around 13th and E St, NW around the corner from the Warner Theatre. Side note: Can anyone explain why this building has a Pennsylvania Ave address when it is located on E Street?
City Paper reports:
“Cucina Al Volo Pizzeria will serve Roman-style “al taglio” pizza. It’s sold in Italy in giant squares by the pound and is most similar to thick, Sicilian-style pie.”
Standby for opening dates for here and Cleveland Park.

Back in September we learned that Maison Kayser was coming to 7th and Mass Ave, NW. Looks like another one is coming to F Street too – across from the National Press building between 13th and 14th. My people familiar with Maison Kayser tell me that this is very good news indeed.
Check out some of their menus here. Stay tuned for opening dates.
