Back in February we learned that Arosto Pizza was coming to the former Sushi Go Round space in Chinatown. Some more details from a liquor license placard posted:

The restaurant will have 40 seats and a capacity of 99 inside, along with a Summer Garden with 30 seats. Total Occupancy Load of 129.

Check out Arosto’s Virginia menu here. Updates as they get closer to opening.

1778 U Street, NW

Back in March of last year we shared the devastating news that Duccini’s had raised their jumbo slice prices by a $1. A reader, rightly, declared “dark times.” Until yesterday that is. Thanks to Mikaela Lefrak for sharing the great news (shouts of joy could be heard all the way from Willard to Columbia Road. Seriously.) Ed. Note: It’s not clear if said screams were jumbo slice related. At any rate – rejoice!!

110 M Street, SE

From a press release:

“Nantucket-born Oath Pizza — the beloved pizza brand known for its grilled and seared in avocado oil thin crust pizzas and the only Certified Humane pizzeria in the country — debuts in Washington DC’s Navy Yard [110 M Street SE] on Monday, April 9th.

The new restaurant is Oath Pizza’s first in the city and second in the metro area — they opened in Fairfax, VA in the Mosaic District last fall.

To celebrate the new restaurant, Oath Pizza will be hosting a grand opening celebration on Thursday, April 19th from 11am to 10pm, where they will offer half of every pizza on the house. They will also have live music, complimentary tote bag giveaways and snacks.

1237 First Street, SE

After some early estimates Declaration is nearly here:

From a press release:

“Declaration Nats Park, the newest restaurant to hit the Capitol Riverfront restaurant scene, has confirmed today that their Grand Opening will be Thursday, April 5th at 11am, just in time for the Nationals home opener. Declaration Nats Park is the fourth restaurant to join the PRG Hospitality family and the second installment of the neighborhood pizza spot in Shaw of the same name. Located at 1237 First St SE, the restaurant will celebrate its grand opening with a free meatball slider with the purchase of a Samuel Adams beer and chances to win gift certificates, Nat’s gear and tickets, and two lucky winners will receive a free pizza every time they dine in during a home game!

The new restaurant is owned and operated by longtime DC restauranteur Alan Popovsky and Corporate Executive Chef and Food Network Chopped Champion Demetrio Zavala of PRG Hospitality who currently own Teddy & the Bully Bar in Dupont Circle, LINCOLN Restaurant in Thomas Circle, and Declaration in Shaw. Having been in the industry for over ten years and started multiple successful DC restaurants Mr. Popovsky has a unique perspective of what works and what doesn’t. He considers the key ingredient to success to be customer satisfaction and expectations and that’s exactly what he plans to accomplish with Declaration Nats Park.

“The opportunity to have our newest restaurant just a baseball throw away from Nats Stadium felt like we had just won the World Series,” says owner Popovsky. All puns intended.

The new restaurant is larger than its original counterpart with seating for 100 featuring an Ohio barn wood exterior, an outdoor walk-up bar, and interior finishing’s, like a steel panel wall with an American flag mural painted across it, by Roxanne Christie of Accents Arts & Design and formerly of Swatchroom.
