On Sunday, November 13, we concluded our 20th Anniversary celebration at our Old Town location. It was ’20 Free Pizzas’ Family/Kids Day. The kids participated in a Make Your Own Pizza demonstration with Chef Ruth Gresser, and did some coloring while they patiently waited for their turn. Play the slide show below for more photos.
PIZZA DATES:Ruth Gresser is celebrating two decades of pizzamaking with a week-long numbers theme: “Everything is about the 20s,” says the Washington chef-restaurateur, who introduced her first Pizzeria Paradiso in Dupont Circle on Nov. 8, 1991, and went on to open branches in Georgetown (2002) and Alexandria (2010).
On Nov. 9, Gresser’s three pizzerias are offering all-you-can-eat pie and up to two beers per person for $20. On Nov. 11, a patron’s first brew will cost 20 cents. The next day, dining room customers will pay the same amount per topping, for up to three adornments. And come Sunday, the Old Town branch is offering a make-your-own demonstration by Gresser and giving away the first 20 pies made by children.
The region’s originator of Neapolitan style pizza, Pizzeria Paradiso is celebrating the big 2-0 this November with a week-long celebration of special events. Since its opening day in Dupont Circle on November 8, 1991, the popular pizzeria has become a Washington Culinary Institution – pioneering traditional, wood-fired pizza in the DC area coupled with setting the bar for excellence and consistency.
