From an email:

“With the Super Bowl coming up in two weeks we here at Bread Furst are testing out the waters on our Pop-up “Alberto’s Pizza”.

In trying to come up with fun ideas for Super Bowl our head baker Ben Arnold wanted to get back to his roots and create a menu of pizza pies for Super Bowl Sunday. Ben’s passion for baking and working with dough began while he was in high school working at a local Pizza shop. With that in mind the pizza menu was a go. Since I was here as well and Ben makes a perfect Philly hoagie rolls for Cheesesteaks, the menu was set.

I have a history of making cheesesteaks and Super Bowl foods having owned Ventnor Sports Cafe in Adams Morgan for more than a decade catering to Philly fans in DC. I’ve dusted off my nacho and wing recipes and I will be manning the kitchen while Ben handles the pizza oven. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Did the Burger King on Connecticut Avenue finally close? It’s disappeared from GrubHub/DoorDash and the website says “closed” for every day of the week now.”

Not sure what’s going on with the websites but every time I walk by the Burger King has been open for take out and drive thru. STAY TUNED.

If you’ve never been blessed to see some amazing photos of the inside here.
