New: Pizza and Brews in Dupont Circle

By Fritz Hahn

Here's the news Dupont Circle pizza and beer fans have been waiting for: Pizzeria Paradiso opens tomorrow at 2003 P St. NW -- just down the street from its original location.

The biggest change is a bigger space -- more than 80 seats in the new building as opposed to 35 in the old townhouse. This means there's also room for a 15-seat bar that will mimic Birreria Paradiso, the popular beer bar at Georgetown's Pizzeria Paradiso. Bar manager Greg Jasgur says there are 180 bottles, 12 draft lines and one English-style cask ale. Here's the cool part: "Right now, there's no overlap [between the beer lists in Georgetown and Dupont]," he says. So if you want to try the Bear Republic Nor Cal, a limited "California bitter," or the new Allagash Fluxus 09, a saison brewed with sweet potato and black pepper, then you'll have to go to Dupont Circle.

Sometime next week, a 12-table patio will be added, but it's currently closed because of construction work being done to the building.

The hours at the new location will remain the same: 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and open until midnight on Friday and Saturday. Sunday hours are noon to 10 p.m.

Oh, and as always, there are no reservations taken -- seating is first-come, first served.
