More D.C. Pizza

Blogger D.C. Concierge answers a question from one of her readers: Where can I find good pizza in the District?

She recommends Comet Pizza and Ping Pong (Warning: Slicester Hackmuth tells us that the pies here are "tiny and expensive"). The concierge also is also in "LOVE LOVE LOVE" with 2 Amys, which at one point was one of the few pizzerias in the U.S. to be listed with the Verace Pizza Napoletana organization (the joint is no longer listed on the VPN site).

Anyway, the concierge claims that the best brick-oven pies in D.C. can be found at Matchbox or at "the unlikely pizza find" of Busboys and Poets.

Her favorite, however, is "a hidden gem" called Washington Deli.

The fact that the above recommendations come from someone who doesn't know what New Haven– or Neapolitan–style pizza is should be just as disconcerting as taking pizza advice from a guy (me) who hasn't been to the nation's capital since Carter was in the White House.

Hackmuth, who does live in D.C., recommends Vace. And three of the concierge's readers recommend Radius, which always gets favorable mentions from Slice readers whenever the city is brought up.
