CP: Sally's Middle Name to Replace Pizza Parts & Service
The Washington City Paper's Young & Hungry writer Jessica Sidman has details on what exactly is replacing Pizza Parts & Service (1320 H Street). Pizza Parts & Service was the newest venture from the Taylor Gourmet team, but it closed its doors suddenly in early February with only a cryptic explanation of what would happen next.
There were rumors flying around the neighborhood, as well as around the internet generally, that it might become a We the Pizza, but that is not the case. PoPville more recently posted a few details about the new restaurant and showroom that will take over the space.
It's going to be called Sally's Middle Name after the sister of owner Sam Adkins. Adkins and his business partner and wife Aphra Adkins will serve up a main menu that will vary by the day. That menu will consist of small plates, and don't expect proteins to dominate. The owners want to give the veggies their due. For dessert they'll have housemade ice creams with unusual flavors (white pepper and durian are offered as examples).
Head upstairs for a market area that doubles as a private event space. Toki chef Erik Bruner-Yang and his wife Seda Nak will partner with the Adkinses on this retail portion that highlights the skills of Aphra Adkins of works in design and fashion.
