2 Amys

My wife and I had dinner last night at the newly opened 2 Amys in Cathedral Heights (that's right, Cathedral Heights - this is NOT Cleveland Park! Macomb just west of Wisconsin Avenue). We've been waiting patiently for them to open, and the wait was definitely worth it.

We shared two appetizers and a pizza. App #1: Potato frittata. Sliced like a piece of pie, about 1.5 inches high, and served at room temperature with a nice red pepper sauce. Very nice. App #2: Rappini(?) - think of a cross between spinach and broccoli, served at room temperature, marinated a bit in garlic and balsamic vinegar. I liked this a lot. Pizza: pancetta with garlic, basil, and a few spices: This was really great. If you like fresh thin crust pizza, GO NOW. Personally, I think they could have put anything at all on this pie and it would have been good; I just loved the crust. The big deal they've made over their oven etc. is totally legit.

2 apps, pizza, (yes this was ample food for two) two glasses of chianti, plus tip = $36 (no dessert this time, but will have some on next visit).

We arrived at about 7:45, the place was full and very lively.

I loved it. Anyone else been yet?
