Great article from Tim Carman of the Post on his 10 favorite DC metro pizza: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/food/best-pizza-dc/

This is a really nice overview of the DC pizza scene right now.

And yet.

I can't remember the last time I took a bite of pizza, and said, "Wow!" I'm accessing my memory banks right now, and I honestly cannot remember.

After writing the previous sentence, I turned to DIShGo, and said, "When's the last time we had a truly great pizza?" <silence> "I mean one where the first bite makes you go, 'Wow!'?" <"Hmm"... <silence> "I don't know." <silence> "I ... can't recall.">

I take it back. Earlier this month, I had lunch at Piccolina, and ordered a Lamb Sausage Scaccia ($13) with Caciocavallo and Rapini. Not only did I say "Wow!" after the first bite, I said "Wow!" when they placed it down in front of me - it was *fantastic*. The only problem is that you need a minimum of two people for this, because #1 on your priority list should be the single-best thing I've had in DC in ... months? Beet-Cured Gravlax and Egg Salad ($12), yes, I said that, and you can thank me after you get them both.

(In full disclosure, we went back the next day, and had two other items which were merely "very good" (Egg and Cheese on Brioche ($8)) and "really good" (Rolled Ham and Fontina Crepe ($7))) - go for those first two things I mentioned, trust me.

The beet-cured gravlax is hands-down the best thing I have eaten in 2020. That picture makes me want to go back tomorrow.

I am pleased to announce that Piccolina changed their menu yesterday, and both the Beet-Cured Gravlax and Egg Salad (breakfast and lunch) and Lamb Sausage Scaccia (dinner) are back on the menu.
