We, the PIzza. I get "Who?" My question is "When?"
Articles have been posting for a year now that that Spike's pizza place "We, the Pizza" is expected to open in early 2010. I saw two pieces (late March and early April) that seemed to indicate it would open shortly but I have not seen anything official. Is it open now? Soft open? Anyone have any details?
Just read this today...
We the Pizza, Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn’s foray into NY-style pies, opens July 19 on Capitol Hill (next door to his successful burger shop, Good Stuff Eatery), offering slices as well as whole rounds, topped classically or inventively, along with submarine sandwiches, spicy wings, spaghetti and meatballs, and housemade gelato; the smart-looking counter-serve operation, with seating on the second floor, features a huge photo taken at Woodstock and an old-fashioned soda fountain dispensing authentic chocolate egg creams and Italian-inspired drinks, and there’s beer available as well (305-307 Pennsylania Ave. SE; 202-543-8222).
We The Pizza opened on Friday, I tried to go on Saturday at 6:30 and they had run out of dough! I can tell everyone this I was at Good Stuff Eatery for the Premiere of Top Chef last month and Spike was testing out his pizza's that night, They brough them over, I had 2 slices of the Spinach and Artichoke Pie and 1 slice of the Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella and Roasted Tomato Pie. They were delicious, Very tasty, The flavors of the toppings were superb and the cheese was also very good. I loved it. The crust was fine, not amazing that I recall but definitely good. I could have have kept eating and eating them.
I have been highly anticipating the opening of We the Pizza ever since this and I look forward to having their pizza again soon.
