Pete’s New Haven Apizza in Clarendon Has Closed

Pete’s New Haven Apizza closed down its Clarendon eatery this weekend.

Sign posted on the front doors this weekend read “Pete’s is permanently closed.” The restaurant’s Instagram page has been taken down and online ordering was disabled for its Clarendon location as of Sunday night.

The eatery specialized in New Haven, Connecticut-style “apizza” — a thinner crust pizza known for their charred edges with simple, fresh toppings.

The eatery posted signs announcing it was shuttering its doors after first opening up shop in Arlington eight years ago.

Last year, Pete’s closed its flagship eatery in Columbia Heights as convenience chain WaWa prepared to take over the space on Irving Street NW.

The pizza joint previously downsized from its original 4,000 square foot space in the Clarendon Center development at 3024 Wilson Blvd. When the pizza joint began construction in Clarendon in 2010, it was the first Virginia location for the D.C.-based local chain.
