I was super excited because I had never been to D.C. before and Brent and I were able to go for such a special occasion, Brent's Great Uncle's 90th Birthday! After a long day of travel we were starving. We went to this little shopping/ eating area in downtown Bethesda, and roamed around until we found this hot spot, Mia's Pizzas. You know the food should be good when it's the only place for blocks that is bursting at the seams. Of course, it was going to be a 45 minute wait, but when there were two open bar seats it was a sign for us to stay, so we ordered some antipasto and a couple of beers and did a little people watching.
Before long we were seated outside and it was gorgeous weather and a perfect evening to chat with our friendly waitress, Stephanie. She was super cute and Brent harassed her endlessly about being on the blog and she took it all in stride. I loved when she said, "You're kind of a big deal, aren't you?" As she was ribbing him back, not knowing that is one of his favorite sayings.
Dinner: We had Peroni beer which was light and crisp and ate the "Jorge's Inferno" pizza- basil pesto, tomato sauce, kalamata olives, garlic, hot peppers, and fresh mozzarella. It came with pepperoni's too, so we just got them on half for Brent. It was awesome! The basil pesto and marinara mix was genius! I love pesto but it's always just too much for me when it's the base of the pizza. I loved that the food is from local farmers as well and you could definitely taste the freshness in the quality of the food. What a great find!
