The title of the post says it all, folks. I think my work here is done.
Alright, alright, fine, I’ll give you a little bit more. District of Pi Pizzeria opens today at 910 F Street NW (that’s right by the 9th Street exit of the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro Station). This is the first location outside of Missouri for Pi, which has four permanent locations (and some mobile locations) in and around St. Louis.
The menu includes both thin-crust and deep-dish pizza, as well as a host of other menu items including some very affordably priced snacks to munch on.
Oh, they also have an excellent beer list. Some excellent Schlafly selections here to cater to the St. Louis feel of it all, but also plenty of east and west coast options with which to wet your whistle.
Along with RFD, Matchbox, and the Iron Horse Taproom, District of Pi becomes another in a growing number of restaurants and bars with strong craft beer menus in the Chinatown neighborhood. Soon enough Chinatown might rival Dupont Circle or H Street for craft beer supremacy in the District…
We’ll have plenty more coverage of District of Pi once we’re actually able to get in there. I had a chance to ask John Fleury, DCist’s (and DC’s) resident beer guru what his impressions of District of Pi were. He said, “District of Pi brings a new experience to the DC craft beer scene by offering some of the best American Craft brews with a new Midwest twist to our pizza choices. While the the pies are certainly the draw, many of the appetizers are both creative and delicious. Combined with comfortable surroundings and decor, District of Pi will be a great addition to our city.” John has more coverage of District of Pi’s opening here, so check that out.
Be sure to get over to District of Pi to try it out when you’re in the neighborhood. Be forewarned though, if Pizzeria Paradiso and Matchbox are any indicator, you could wait a while to get in. This place is bound to be popular.
