Thanks to Barry for sending:
Veloce opened up back in May 2015. Veloce was “a quick service pizza restaurant from the acclaimed culinary talent behind Pizzeria Paradiso.”
Fortunately Pret A Manger remains open:
2465 18th Street, NW

Whoa – Ross reports:
“Competition for &pizza in old Zombie Donuts space in Columbia Heights?”
&pizza opened in the Columbia Heights Plaza back in March 2016. Zombie Donuts closed in December of last year. Pidzza has locations in Chinatown, Ivy City and most recently opened on U Street. You can see their menu here.
As I was typing this up I just got this email from Matthew:
“Pidzza in Chinatown. This has been up for close to 2 weeks now.
A friend tells me the pizza sauces were too spicy so she only had the pizza once, but wished they had a non-spicy sauce because she would eat there more often.”
Updates when we have an opening date in Columbia Heights and more info on Chinatown.

Well happy Wednesday indeed!! In scuttlebutt from a tipster who has a 100% accuracy rating (please no jinx, knock wood, knock wood) – the best pizza in D.C. is opening another branch in Navy Yard. I hear the former Il Parco space will become none other than a Wiseguy Pizza. But that’s not all. Those who remember the Parco/Park Tavern space remember there is a nice bar space so expect some serious beer options. In addition to the pizza expect some gelato and coffee options as well. Updates when confirmation comes.

The liquor license placard for Sonny’s Square Pie/Sister Bar says:
“New class “C” restaurant with 199 seats and a Total Occupancy Load of 250. Applicant requests
two Summer Gardens: a front Summer Garden with 25 seats, and a rear Summer Garden with 95 seats. Applicant has also applied for an Entertainment Endorsement.”
City Paper reports that it comes from next door neighbors, Colony Club, and in addition to the square pizza:
“The menu will also include house-baked breads, sandwiches, salads, and “old-school New York-style sides like garlic knots and pepperoni rolls.”
Well this is insane – Wiseguy Pizza posted yesterday:
“This is unbelievable. This pizza shop (Pizzolis Pizzeria) imposing and scamming customers to be Wiseguy Pizza. I just got an another complaint that we screwed them. In fact it was not Wiseguy Pizza.
This happened several months ago and we didn’t take it seriously because we thought it was a one time thing but now this is too much.
Please note that we don’t do traditional delivery. We do $100 minimum with 24 hours notice.
They are targeting mostly hotel guests with google adds like this for delivery.
We will be going after them. What do you think?”
4th and H Street, NW
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.
Technically 1299 Pennsylvania Ave, NW but entrance actually on E Street
2121 K Street, NW
Well this is the greatest name for a “Pizza Bar” ever. Also a pizza bar sounds amazing. HomeSlyce’s website says:
“Dine In – Hang Out – Get Delivery
Join us in one of our great Downtown Baltimore or Columbia store. Each store unique with a feel and commitment for the neighborhood. All locations offer table service, carry-out and delivery.
Downtown in Federal Hill – Mount Vernon – Canton and Columbia Maryland”
Check out their menu here. Anyone ever try them out here or at one of the other spots?
This is the former Pizza Autentica, then Sugar space next to Bobby’s Burger Palace:
