A Pizza Follow-Up

In today's Weekly Dish, Tom Sietsema follows up on the pizza rumor he started last week.

It is indeed Carole Greenwood and James Alefantis of Buck's Fishing and Camping who plan to open a 70-seat spot later this fall with a somewhat random ping-pong theme. The pizza joint will take over the former Thai Room location at 5037 Connecticut Ave. NW.

As for the pizza style, Alefantis describes it to the Weekly Dish as "Neo-Neopolitan," or "crisp, thin-crusted pies, covered (or not) with sauce as opposed to crushed tomatoes."

No word on a name yet.
