&pizza, the D.C.-based fast casual pizza concept, has been mum about when it plans to open at 7614 Old Georgetown Rd.
Based on the progress of the build-out, it seems the restaurant is getting close.
On Thursday, crews lifted a sign onto the storefront, the former space of a dry cleaner. The store is next to the popular Chipotle location near the Bethesda Metro station.
The pizzas are long rectangles instead of circles and the menu lets customers build their own with a choice of doughs, sauces, cheeses and meats. There are also suggested pizzas, salads and desserts, including a nutella pizza covered with pecans, strawberries and other items for $5.91.
The chain started with locations on H Street and U Street. Judging by its marketing material, it hopes to bring that vibe to new locations in Bethesda and Germantown.
The website features a photo of “Josh,” with a skateboard in hand as he jumps onto the historic Cider Barrel in Germantown. The Bethesda photo is of “Margot,” as she walks along the Capital Crescent Trail.
