H Street has been waiting patiently for a gourmet pizza spot for a while now and while some places have been proposed that have not panned out, H & Pizza is on track to open at 1118 H Street -- the building next door to Taylor Gourmet, which previously housed Birdand -- later this Spring.
H & Pizza's owner Steve Salis is keeping his cards close to his chest for now, but he's excited to bring quality pizza to H Street and promises gourmet ingredients and a first rate product. H & Pizza will offer three types of crusts -- regular, whole wheat and nine grain and will also provide a variety of options for vegans, lactose intolerant and is working on developing a gluten free crust as well. Salis comes to DC from New York where he was involved in the restaurant business and has chosen H Street for his first outpost. H & Pizza is something of a fast-casual pizza concept, offering customizable made to order personal gourmet pizzas, made with top quality fresh ingredients. They will not offer pizza by the slice or delivery, but will be available for dine in and will do some carry out business as well. H & Pizza is renovated the building now in hopes of a late Spring opening.
