Current Status: Walk-up counter service open for lunch and dinner in the Roost complex.
Overview: Really good (NYC-style) pizza. Square ones too. That is the bottom line.
There is other background information that might be useful, but the fact is a really good NYC-style slice is hard to find and we presume the decision of nearly every person who reads this will be driven by that fact. Other information that might be helpful: the ingredients are very good; they offer drinks; Chef Rachel Marie spent four years at the acclaimed Roberta’s in Brooklyn; the first Slice Joint location is on the Lower East Side and this is the first one outside of NYC.
Neighborhood: Capitol Hill
Address: 1401 Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington DC 20003
Washington Post: Tim liked the spice pepperoni square in his overview of The Roost.
