  1. Washingtonian with the story: "New Details on Tony Conte's Anticipated Restaurant: Inferno Pizzeria Napoletana" by Anna Spiegel on washingtonian.com
  2. Driving through Rockville today, I felt a strange urge to detour through the parking lot where Three Brothers used to be - I hadn't noticed that this location had closed - and in its place was a dusty construction site and signage for "Pizza CS - napoletana, come sempre". Judging from the Google results, it looks like owners Ankur Rajpara and Jonathan Allen may have originally intended to open in Baltimore's Canton area before settling down in Rockville. There's the stalled rough beginnings of a website nowhere near ready for public viewing, PizzaCS.com, but the most up-to-date info comes from their Facebook page, which shows the delivery of their Stefano Ferrara oven in July and predicts an October opening date.
  3. Late night this past Saturday, I went with a group to the recently opened Hersh's Pizza & Drinks in the South edge of Federal Hill. The chef, Josh Hershkovitz, who used to work at Charleston & Petit Louis, opened the place with his sister to serve Neapolitan style pizza. They also feature housemade sausage and pasta on the menu. Their menu features a good selection of beer as well as an interesting array of cocktails. I started with a Fernando, made with Fernet Branca Galliano, & Cinzano. We chatted with Stephanie, the chef's sister and co-owner, a little. She recommended the cheese pizza with fried eggplant and sausage. We also tried the kale & pistachio pizza and the white clam pizza. The crust on their pizza was outstanding- thin, with a little bite and chewinesss. I read in the City Paper that they do not do lunch as the starter takes 24 hours to be ready. My favorite was the kale & pistachio with fontina and a lot of garlic. The fried eggplant also makes for a great topping. They had run out of their pasta that evening, but they let us try some of their Berkshire pork ragu- quite good. As this place is a short walk from my house, I look forward to making this a regular hangout. 1843-45 Light Street Baltimore MD 21230 443-438-4948
  4. Team, We have been reading this forum for a long time and found it very helpful in enhancing our dining experience. Now, me and my partner Enzo Algarme have opened our own food establishment and want to invite you guys to check it out. Enzo, who is from Naples, Italy, worked in the kitchen of the renown "Il Pizzaiolo del Presidente" (certified by Verace Pizza Napoletana) in Naples, where he learned how to make authentic Neapolitan specialties, which we are now making here, in Arlington, Virginia. Some things, like the Neapolitan Fried Calzone, you can't find anywhere else in this area. We also make Palle di Riso (crunchy rice balls stuffed with peas, veggie crumble and cheese), Panzarotti - potato croquettes stuffed with mozzarella, Neapolitan-style pizza (we do not have a wood-burning oven, but use the same recipe and the ingredients as pizzerias in Naples). The food we serve is the authentic Neapolitan STREET food, just like you find on the streets of Naples. Our food establishment is a STREET CART, not a restaurant, so the prices are more than reasonable. We have been open for about 1 week in the neighbourhood of Ballston, in Arlington, VA just outside the Metro station, at the corner of Stuart and 9th streets. We are only open Mon-Fri for breakfast and lunch right now, from 8 to 3:30, but soon will be open until 8pm. Come to give us a shot! Anastasiya and Enzo pupatella.com myspace.com/pupatella1pizza
  5. Looks like another pizza place coming to the area. http://www.pizzablog...aches-maryland/
  6. So, I was over on Georgia Avenue this morning where there's a newsstand,where my husband was picking up the Racing Form to handicap the Derby, when I spotted this place called Pacci's Neapolitan Pizzeria - http://paccispizzeria.com/ - opening today. I had to run in and check it out, and there was the wood-burning oven and the pizzaiolo from Naples. I had a brief chat with the owner who assured me that this would be the real thing. They're making fresh mozzerella - and hopefully this will be vera pizza Napolitana. We were going out of town for the weekend, but I hope to check it out on Monday. Looks so promising!
  7. Looks like another pizza joint headed to Bethesda. Looks to be next door to Gaffney's. http://www.havenpizzeria.com/
  8. Opening in mid-April by self-proclaimed beer nerd Leland Estes, and maestro pizzaiolo Ettore Rusciano from Naples, Menomalé promises 20 draft beers and traditional pizza from a 900 degree oven. Even a vegan "cheese" option is promised for those who want it. A little more info here on the Brookland blog: http://brooklandaven...om/blog/?p=4988 2711 12th St NE, Washington DC
  9. I could have sworn there was a thread for this. Please merge if there is one. Went with some friends last week. It was....good. Not great. The space is nice. Got seated at a booth (a little tight). The thing I did not like about the initial experience is that you cannot make reservations -- it is first come, first serve....period. So you go and you wait. On a mid-weeknight, with an early dinner time (6 was the target), you would think there would be little, if any wait. Wrong. 40 minutes. FEH! The calimari was good, bruschetta was acceptable. Some kind of shrimp thing on bread (good) and a carpaccio (heavy on the salad, light on the carpaccio and accompaniments. I had a pizza, which was tasty and good, but the crust was very floppy in the middle. They either did not properly handle the dough when shaping, or made it too thin in the middle. Or they were not keeping the oven temp high enough. Or I made the mistake of getting toppings on my pizza instead of going for the classic margherita. Still, the toppings were very, very good (sausage, pancetta, etc). Service was good, except when they brought out the wrong bottle of wine later in the meal. I didn't notice it until after opened/poured, but the mistake bottle was good, and cheaper. My friends had dinner salads of sorts and/or pasta with fish and they all seemed to enjoy their dishes. I'd go back, but would focus on a later or even earlier start time to the meal -- I hate waiting. And next time I will try the margherita.
  10. 2Amys is a local treasure for most reasons (except maybe service, which can be pretty indifferent at times). Every now and then, I do a benchmark visit to other spots but, with the possible exception of Orso, I think 2Amys is at the top of the local Neapolitan heap even after all these years.
