From an email:
“Slice Joint is a joint venture between Neighborhood Restaurant Group (The Roost 1401 Pennsylvania Ave, SE) and Rachael Marie, formerly of Roberta’s. The first Slice Joint location opened at The Market Line food hall on the Lower East Side in November 2019 (the same food hall where NRG’s craft beer bar The Grand Delancey sits). Slice Joint’s menu features a tight selection of approachable, New York and Grandma-style pizzas (whole & by-the-slice) that rely on only fresh, seasonal and high-quality ingredients – including Rachae’s house cheese blend. Slice Joint’s DC location will mirror the current offerings, with some seasonal updates. Read More

Back in October we shared the scuttlebutt (aka “the rumors”) that Northern Virginia’s beloved Pupatella would be taking over the then recently closed Rosemarys Thyme Space on 18th Street. Today news reports confirm the scuttlebutt. Washingtonian reports: “Owner and Naples native Enzo Algarme says his team is angling for a spring opening.”
See some love for the Arlington spot here and STAY TUNED for an exact opening date.
