We just told you about Fire Works Pizza, the huge new wood-fired pizza restaurant that’s coming to Courthouse. Now, a tipster tells us that yet ANOTHER specialty pizza restaurant is on the way.
Pete’s New Haven Apizza, currently of Columbia Heights in the District, will lease a storefront in the new Clarendon Center development. Co-owner Joel Mehr confirms that Pete’s is hoping to open the Arlington restaurant — its third in the D.C. area — at some point this winter.
Washingtonian said the slices at Pete’s are “not only the best in town; they’re worthy of comparison with the best in the country.” Pete’s even got a glowing endorsement from President Obama last fall… seriously.
Mehr says the new Pete’s will likely feature a larger beer and wine menu than the Columbia Heights location.
Between American Flatbread, Faccia Luna, Liberty Tavern and — soon — Fire Works Pizza and Pete’s, locals will have plenty of pizza options.
Writes our tipster: “Clarendon will be the pizza capital of Arlington… I hope there are enough eaters to go around.”
