Brightest Young Things: First Look and Taste Test: Veloce

The world will always have room for more pizza. Today is the perfect day to celebrate a new pizza joint in D.C. because May the 4th is a high holiday for pizza. We celebrate Spaceballs and all the joy that film has given us, including Pizza the Hut. Veloce, from the folks who brought us Pizzeria Paradiso, opens TODAY on L Street in Dupont. It gives us that sweet high quality pizza we’ve grown to love from Pizzeria Paradiso with a slightly more casual feel. The taste, however, is anything but casual. Chef/Owner Ruth Gresser made sure to locally source as much as she could, paying special attention to the crust.
