When this hand-tossed-pizza spot first opened, it seemed like a risky bet given the high bar set by capital favorites such as Matchbox and 2 Amys. But the breezy charm of this casual bistro quickly vaulted its pies to the top of the heap. Each is named for a nearby neighborhood—the zesty mating of basil and anchovies on the "SW Waterfront" pie is matched only by the creamy goat cheese of the "Eastern Market." Pizzas match well with the small cast of bottled beers available
at this bright, Eurocentric spot with a welcoming vibe. Make sure to save room for the decadent hazelnut-chocolate dessert calzone.
