PoP: Red Rocks Pizzeria coming to 1348 H Street

DSC_0015

Prince of Petworth reports that Red Rocks Pizzeria is headed for the Evolve owned space at 1348 H Street. Originally the space was to become Sweet Charleston's which would have served up low country food.

It should be noted that this is basically two buildings that were combined a while back, so that's going to make it a HUGE restaurant space (according to the PoP post it will be 7,000 sqft spread over 3 stories). Red Rocks uses a woodburning oven to turn out Neopolitan style pies.

This is good, because there aren't enough pizza places on H Street.

Amanda-
you are always welcome to come dine at Chez Charles in Rosedale. I do so enjoy the company of a beautiful, single white woman ;)

Sure! Why, there's H and Pizza, and, um, Liberty Tree...and...yeah, that's all I got.

@Charles,

FYI: "Amanda" is a 45 year old Samoan man who smells like sardines and walks with a cane.

Amanda and Charles, I can show you both a great time. At the same time. I have two tailstretchers and a two gallon drum of dragon juice ready to go. Call me maybe?

Would love for a Thai place to enter into the mix. Once one gets here, I won't need to wander out to NW anymore. Praying that Hikari sushi will be good.

Agreed, we do the same almost weekly, hopefully it can be a GOOD Thai spot like Ethiopic is for its respective cuisine. There are more mediocre Thai spots in DC than great ones.
