Fast-casual pizza chain &pizza is bringing gourmet pizzas baked in practically a nano-second to Gaithersburg. The chain's third Montgomery County location opens today in Gaithersburg's Downtown Crown development.
This is the brand’s ninth location in the Washington, D.C. metro area. And this outpost pays tribute to the history of the Gaithersburg restaurant's site in an interesting way. Downtown Crown was once Crown Farm, the 180-acre farm established in the early 1800s. In that spirit, a massive 26-person reclaimed wood farm table with black spindle-back chairs is a main feature in the new &pizza's design. Other nods to the site's history include design touches like reclaimed wood, barn door hardware in the restrooms and corrugated metal featuring an abstract representation of tractor tire tracks.
