Where can I buy bucatini in DC?

I'm making amatriciana, and spaghetti just won't do. Anyone know a place that sells bucatini in the District?

    Eastern Market Grocery inside eastern market often has it call ahead to check or ask that they order some if you have the luxury of time.

    (202) 544-2112

        Good idea. Also maybe Dean and Deluca in Georgetown?

          Vace's had it 3 weeks ago. I brought some back to Iowa.

        I expect Litteri's would carry it.

          Also if you want a walk on the wild side you could try A. Litteri, Inc. down in the wharehouse district behind Union Station.

          Its address is:

          A. Litteri, Inc.
          517-519 Morse Street, NE
          Washington, D.C. 20002

          Call ahead though to make sure it isn't a wasted trip, although you can always find something good by just dropping in.

          Phone: (202) 544-0183

            Thanks, all! I'm going to try Litteri's because it's on my way to work in the morning and looks like a cool place. But I appreciate everyone's input, and will now be able to find my favorite pasta in a snap in almost any part of town.

                  Go to your nearest Target. Giada De Laurentis has a line of food items that includes bucatini.
