The Barracks Row Ledo Pizza Is Open
by Larry Janezich
Ledo Pizza on Barracks Row opened its doors on Wednesday after waiting eight months for the necessary permits to work their way through the city bureaucracy.
General Manager Jon Dibartolomeo says, “Community response has been amazing.” Asked how he found his way to management of the popular pizza franchise, Dibartolomeo referenced his father who emigrated from Italy and established a successful restaurant in Detroit – “He was my hero.” Dibartolomeo says he joined the Ledo team after meeting the franchisee and being impressed by his commitment to the DC area. The Ledo Pizza chain was founded in 1955 in Maryland and has become a staple in the DMV tri-state area.
Here’s a link to their website and menu: https://locations.ledopizza.com/ll/US/DC/Barracks-Row/415-8th-St_-SE The menu offers both a traditional gluten free crust as well as a gluten free cauliflower crust.
