H &pizza has been open fewer than five months, but already the fast causal spot on H Street NE has plans to expand to U Street NW.

Co-owner Steve Salis tells Y&H that the restaurant has signed a lease for a 1,200 square foot space at 1250 U St. NW, which currently is home to a Quiznos. He hopes to open in the spring.

As for whether H &pizza will change its name at its new location—-U &pizza, anyone?—-Salis won’t say.

“I’m not going to be able to comment on that yet,” he says. “Obviously we’re at the beginning stages of putting it all together.”
