There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Virginia Is for (Pizza) Lovers
You’re right: The pizza in D.C. does suck, even the places you halfheartedly stuck up for (“Pie in the Sky,” 2/4). At least once a month, when I can’t take it anymore, I get in the car and drive to the Italian Store, at Lee Highway and Spout Run in Arlington, to satisfy my needs. It’s only five minutes outside the District, and in addition to the great sandwiches, the cheese pizza is very good, and the white pizza is maybe the best I’ve had. They also sell Flintstones soda, which you don’t see anywhere else around here.
