Back in September 2016 I shared some scuttlebutt that &pizza was looking at this space (the old Ghana cafe back in the day.) Well, the Adams Morgan pizza desert is finally nearing its end! Stay tuned.

Pizza Trattoria (formerly El Khartoum) closed back in March. Coming soon – Aladdin’s Kitchen. There will still be pizza and I’m super eager to check out the “NY Style Gyros”. Stay tuned.

Hot on the heels of ANXO Cidery & Tasting Room opening last weekend, hang on to your hats Kennedy Street boosters – you’re getting a wood brick oven pizzeria this Fall!!! Huge, huge, huge news for Brightwood Park (old school north country Petworth) peeps pining for pizza. All I’m told is that the name is ROTONDA and they’ll be opening this Fall. STAY TUNED.

“Well, that was quick. They spent the weekend loading up a moving truck, and now all signage is gone and the doors are closed. I think they spent about as much time prepping the space for pizza ovens, etc. than they spent in actual operation. Bummer.”
Ed. Note: We last spoke about best pizza in DC back in 2013 – perhaps time for an update?
Thanks to Nate for sending:

Wow that was fast. Readers report:
“In restaurant closure news, it looks like the Pie 360 on K Street (btw 6th and 7th) might be gone for good. There is a handwritten “closed” sign on the door, and it’s a little hard to see in the photos but the pizza oven and all the equipment has been removed. The Pie 360 opened last September.”
