After that monstrosity and travesty from last week, I headed next door to Dupont Pizza. And when I mean next door, literally. This is a massive step up, with the understanding that this is a late night destination.
As someone who is passionate about a good pie, I felt it was only right that I try whatever I can in plain sight, pun not intended. I was only slightly full from picking apart the slices from its’ neighbor, that I had room for more.
For only $9, I ordered the cheese and the supreme. I had forgotten that you get these mega slices So it’s the equivalent of four slices for under $10. In Washington, DC that constitutes stealing. That’s not a pun either.
If you just want serviceable pizza with a crust that’s not too thick and not extremely thin either, this is your place.
The cheese and the toppings were solid. The meats and veggies seemed fresh enough for what you’re expecting. Like I said, after some of the lackluster slices from earlier, this is going to taste like a five star meal, which it’s not. I didn’t even need the slices reheated. They looked good as is and thankfully I was right.
The team member behind the counter was no-nonsense yet friendy. And in DC, I won’t necessarily take that, as people would say. But it’s better than what I expected.
I was able to get several meals out of this, since this was so hefty. I feel like I won and won some more.
However, I would happy to eat this if I were passing through or after a late night out. My later nights and partying in DC are few and far between, so it may be a while before I return. No big deal. There’s places like this in many major metropolitan and cosmopolitan cities.
That’s why I can appreciate when a not-so-welcoming and transient region like Washington, DC has a simplistic pizzeria as so. This is where the self awareness title comes from. They know what they are and don’t need to be any more. That’s appreciated.
I’m all for high end and upscale pizza places if they deliver (I don’t mean actual delivery), and the prices justify what’s being served. I hope more times than not we can be so fortunate to get what we pay for.
With that being said, I’ve only begun to write about our nation’s capital. There’s enough material that could last me till rapture. Hopefully I can make it that far.
Here was my inaugural Washingtonian post.
In the meantime, if you’re in the area, and need a slice in mere minutes to go, this is as good as any.
Have a Happy Memorial Day.
