On the heels of the Tino’s Pizzeria progress comes more pizza news for that neck of the woods. Thanks to all who messaged us the news from the Washington Business Journal that a Matchbox would be taking over the former Grilled Oyster Co. space.

Back in April we learned the new pizza spot coming to the old Chipotle space would be a Tino’s. A liquor license placard has now been posted:
“A new Retailer’s Class C Restaurant with a seating capacity of 49 and Total Occupancy Load of 60. Sidewalk Café with 14 seats.”
Tino’s website is now live too:
“Tino’s pizzeria concept was inspired by Chef, Logan Griffith’s pizza making passion and intrigue to create a traditional yet modern Neapolitan style pizza. The name Tino’s was inspired by Logan and wife Maria’s newly arrived son Constantino.”
Check out their menus here.
Good progress on the inside too: (more…)

Thanks to Ken for sending: “No more Mediterranean Spot? Or just rebranding?”
Mediterranean Spot opened up at 15th and U St, NW back in August 2012. Previously they were known as 24/Seven located at 1408 U Street. Back in 2013 they added brick pizza ovens at the current location. In May of 2018 we learned that the local ANC had “voted to protest the request for later liquor-service hours.”
Updates as more is known about DC Stone Pizza.
