In great news for people who love ampersands and pizza, H &pizza has thrown open its doors on H Street this morning with made-to-order pizzas, plus salads, pizzelle waffle cookies and a dessert pizza with Nutella, ricotta, strawberry, powdered sugar, and pecans. Oh, and plenty of love for the ampersand from the menu to the website to the giant ampersand painted on the wall as you walk in.
H &pizza's kitchen is a focal point, per a release which explains that there's a counter in the back where you can watch the chefs at work. District Cuisine got into the soft opening party last night, where they further noted historic pictures of H Street on the walls and six-seater tables that will altogether seat about 30. Here's a look at the customizable menu, which also includes nine of their suggestions — several of which are vegetarian or vegan friendly.
