The Wharf is getting a late-night pizza option with the opening of Union Pie on Saturday, September 15.
The new carb kiosk (980 Wharf Street SW) comes from the trio of Brindley brothers, who run two area music venues: the Wharf’s new 8,000-square-foot Union Stage nearby and Jammin’ Java in Vienna, Va.
Union Pie’s opening lineup features five types of Jersey-style pies. Whole 12-inch pizzas, built for two, cost $12 to $14 and half portions start at $7. Union Stage and its adjoining tap room have acted as a testing ground of sorts for its thin crust recipes, which have amassed a fan base amongst Southwest concertgoers over the past few months.
There’s a “hot and sweet” pizza with sliced hot sopressatta, serrano peppers, San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, grated pecorino romano, and honey, as well as a white pie and grilled veggie variety. Gluten-free crust requests cost $2 extra.
Stay tuned for hours and shots of the small setup, which sits across from Shake Shack. Signage is slated to go up on Thursday, September 13.
