Snapshot: Pi Pizzeria, NW DC
DC is a weird town for food. I often find that the most hyped places… well… suck, and are far too pretentious for anyones good, yet alone their own. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the DC food scene, it’s just that you have to filter through the put-on-a-pedestal BS to figure out what’s good. I love Adams Morgan, and have been meaning to write about what may be my favorite fast food joint ever for a while now. That piece is still in the works, but in the meantime, I have to tell you guys about Pi Pizzeria.
Based on a recommendation I went in for their happy hour specials yesterday. I always looked at this spot and planned on coming here at some point. I am an idiot for not coming sooner. Before 8pm you can snag what in my opinion is easily one of the best margherita pizzas on US soil for a mere $7.00. As a self-admitted food snob, who used to live in southern Italy, I take no issue with calling this the best pizza in DC. It simply is.
Amazing sauce, super fresh buffalo mozzarella, copious amounts fresh basil, and a charred crust that is out of this world. I plan on revisiting to get more food for a full review, but for the moment, all I can say is that if you are anywhere near DC, head to 18th NW, and snag one of the best pies ever crafted that costs way less than it should.
