New Pizzerias. Our humble opinion is that D.C. lacks in delicious pizza options (Much to our dismay). Pete’s APizza, a Tenleytown gem, just opened a second location in Columbia Heights.

(202) 237-7383.

If you’re a fan of NY-style pies, head to Capitol Hill, where Top Chef  alum Spike Mendelsohn just opened We, The Pizza. 305 Pennsylvania Ave. S.E., Washington, D.C. (202) 544-4008
