PIZZERIA PARADISO

The original Pizzeria Paradiso, located on the second floor of a small townhouse in Dupont Circle, opened its doors in November 1991. The restaurant received immediate critical acclaim and has since been consistently ranked among the finest restaurants in Washington, DC. This location was upgraded in 2009, and is now located at 2003 P Street. A second location, in historic Georgetown, opened in December 2002. Our third restaurant, located at 124 King St in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, was opened in October, 2010.

WHO IS AUSTIN TICE?

Austin Tice is an American journalist who has been held captive in Syria since August 2012. He was last heard from after being stopped at a checkpoint in Syria. No one is claiming to have him or demanding ransom. A native of Houston and an Eagle Scout, Austin wrote for the Washington Post and McClatchy Newspapers, and was part of a McClatchy team that won a Polk Award for coverage of Syria. He filed reports for CBS News and took outstanding photographs. Austin was at Georgetown Law School when he left to go to work in Syria. He served in the United States Marine Corps in Iraq prior to Georgetown. In April 2018, the FBI offered a $1 million reward for information leading to his safe return.

WHAT IS “NIGHT OUT FOR AUSTIN TICE?”

A coalition of restaurants are joining The National Press Club, The Washington Post, Georgetown University and Reporters Without Borders to raise awareness of Austin’s case AND raise more reward money through the Night Out program. Participating restaurants offer a percentage of the revenue raised from the dinner sales at their restaurant on May 2, 2019. By dining at participating restaurants, diners support the effort to bring Austin Tice home and the ideal of a free and fair press.
