A local pizza chain finally looks ready to open in a space just off Clarendon’s main drag, after more than two years of construction work.
Stone Hot Pizza initially applied for permits to move to the neighborhood in September 2016, but has made little progress since then. But county records show the restaurant won a commercial business permit on Feb. 1, and a glance inside the storefront at 3217 Washington Blvd shows that construction is ramping up.
The restaurant’s staff did not respond to a request for comment on when, exactly, the pizzeria might finally open.
Stone Hot Pizza also operates locations in Alexandria, Falls Church and Fairfax. Menu items include specialty pizzas, calzones, sandwiches, pastas, salads, wings, meat pies and various appetizers and desserts, according to the chain’s website.
Whenever the new pizzeria starts serving up pies, it’ll be located on a suddenly busy block of Clarendon.
