RedRocks will open its third D.C.-area Neapolitan pizzeria on Columbia Pike tomorrow (Friday).

RedRocks is opening the 133-seat eatery at Penrose Square, on the 2500 block of Columbia Pike. The restaurant overlooks the new Penrose Square park and the restaurant’s owners plan to debut outdoor seating (about 20 seats) starting this spring.

The restaurant is best known for its wood oven pizza, but also offers charcuterie, cheeses, salads, vegetable dishes, pasta, small plates and snack-sized items. Drink offerings include 20 draft beers, a small bottled beer selection, a wine selection and seven signature cocktails.

The happy hour menu includes DC Brau Public pale ale and Port City Optimal Wit, plus Chardonnay, Cabernet and Merlot for $3. Mixed drinks are $5. Basic marinara and Neapolitan pizzas are offered for $6 during happy hour.

RedRocks will be open today (Thursday) for an invite-only “soft opening.” It will hold its grand opening on Friday, with doors open to the public at 6:00 p.m. The restaurant will start its lunch service on Saturday. It will open for lunch every day except Mondays, starting at 11:00 a.m. (RedRocks will be open for dinner every night.)

RedRocks has existing location in D.C.’s Columbia Heights neighborhood and in Old Town Alexandria. An H Street NE location is also opening soon.

    Anyone know what time the happy runs to/from? Seems like a good deal.

  • novasteve

    Not that I agree with the rule, but isn’t it a no no to advertise drink specials outside of the establishment?

    $14 for 11″ pizza!? Suddenly Lost Dog looks like a bargain…

    • jimmydat

      If you don’t mind bland soggy pizza or your pick of 50 sandwiches that all sort of taste the same…

  • Alex

    What a limited menu…

    Is this where crazy Caps’ fans will go after the team’s latest loss? Ha ha ha! I love recycling my stale rants.

  • Grammar Nazi

    “Invite” is a verb, not a noun. “Invitation” is the corresponding noun.

    • Tabby_TwoTone

      Similarly, quote is a verb, but nearly everyone shortens the noun quotation.

    Went there last night, service was good, beer & food very good!
