Vapiano's

Bruschetta pizza!

Margherita pizza.
Look how quickly Chad is eating his pizza!

Dana is enjoying hers too!

It's Tiffany's first time on the blog.

Brado is new too!

Dave's a regular on the blog.

Ryan's eyes look weird, but he still likes the pizza.

Jennifer finally got the right pizza and demolished it! 





We went with a very large party to Vapiano's in DC at the Chinatown location and had an excellent time.  The ordering and payment process is perfect for large parties because each person gets their own magnetic card thingee and when you order, it gets swiped onto the card and you pay just for what you ordered!  No figuring out the bill split by 20 people!  Brilliant! 

To top it off, I think everyone was happy with their food.  Jennifer and I split the Caprese salad, which is always my favorite.  It was very yummy.  The first pizza they brought her was the wrong one, but they left the "mistake" pizza anyways (which made a lot of hungry people happy) and brought her the correct pie soon.  They are all individual pizzas and everyone ordered their own.  I, of course, ordered the basic margherita and I wasn't disappointed.  The crust is thin and crispy and it doesn't get soggy in the middle.....which is good.  Mine had a perfect amount of sauce-to-cheese ratio and I devoured the pizza in record time.  Vapiano's describes itself as a "fast casual" restaurant, and it is certainly that.  However, for a Friday night with a big group, it felt more than just 'casual'.  It has a fun, festive atmosphere and we all had a great time!

Michael's Wedding Pizza


Michael's Wedding Day Pizza from Pete's A Pizza


Ryan was the best man--also chomping on pre-wedding pizza


Rich Caraviello---groomsman


Jonathan Shernit--brother of bride


Matthew Shernit--brother of bride


Me-happy to be eating Pete's again!! Finally!!

This is not an official review of Pete's-A-Pizza. However, I can't help but be so proud of Michael that on his wedding day, he served his groomsmen pizza from Pete's. It's by far the best pizza in the DC area and I have been remiss not to have reviewed it sooner. There will definitely be a pizza trip to the restaurant soon!

But for now, it's good to know that on his wedding day, Michael ate the best pizza in the area. No wonder it was the happiest day of his life! Seriously though, Jessica is finally an official Stuart and we love her. The last thing she said to me before leaving on their honeymoon is that we'd get pizza as soon as they get back!! What a great addition to the fam!
