Moroni & Brother's on Georgia Avenue Serves Up Incredible Pizza at Reasonable Prices

When I first heard of Moroni & Brother's restaurant on Georgia Avenue, I was a tad bit skeptical. 

Word on the street was that this small nook of a food joint served not only incredible wood-fire pizza, but also delicious Mexican and El Salvadorian fare.  In general, pizza and Latin American cuisine do not go together, but the claims were that at Moroni & Brother's, they made it work.

After eating there, I can testify that they do make it work.  And that's an understatement. 

I tasted the basic cheese pizza and it was magnificent.  I would honestly go so far as to say it might be the best pizza I've had in the city.  The pizza was thin-crust style, and was smothered with really high quality cheese.

But the party in my mouth didn't end there.

Columbia Heights is going Greek.  The Sts Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church at the corner of 16th and Upshur streets in Columbia Heights will host D.C.'s oldest and largest Greek Festival. 

The festival will take place on September 17th and 18th from noon to 9:30 p.m., and noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday the 19th.  The event will take place rain or shine, and admission and parking are completely free.  There will be lots of food, and credit cards will be accepted. 

The festival, which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary, will be raffling of a 42-inch TV from Best Buy, with the benefits going to Martha's Table.  Raffle tickets will cost $5 each.

The event expects to have about 5,000 attendees, but there will be plenty of space...the festival areas spans three acres!

With food and drink, music and arts, the Greek Festival should be a hit.
