The Dish: Pumped-Up Pizza

Fuel begins offering NYC style ‘za at its first Washington D.C. location.

The Riviera is topped with mozzarella, spinach, tomatoes, artichokes, feta, kalamata olives and garlic.

The District is home to a lot of great pizza, whether you love Neapolitan style at 2 Amys or Pete’s New Haven ‘za. But New York City’s signature slices don’t get any love in this town.

Fuel wants to correct that oversight with the opening their first area location on Wednesday, January 18 from 12–6 p.m. To win over hardcore pizza fans, Fuel will be offering a year of free food to the first 50 customers through the door.

Even if you’re the 51st person that gets in, you’ll get to try a variety of complimentary dishes including pizzas like the Old Bay Crab, Extreme Fuel (pepperoni, Italian sausage, meatballs, ham and ground beef), Pyramid (fresh tomato sauce, roasted chicken, spinach, green bell peppers, part-skim mozzarella and Romano cheese on a multigrain crust) and the Cajun (sausage, chicken breast, seasoned onions, green peppers, mushrooms, and aged cheddar).

It looks like New York City pizza is finally getting the local respect it so richly deserves.

Fuel, 1606 K St. NW; 202-659-3835,
