La Forchetta Vows To Topple 2Amys As D.C.’s Highest Neapolitan Temple

Restaurateur Hakan Ilhan has taste-tested all sorts of artisanal pizzas around town. “2Amys, in my opinion, was No. 1," Ilhan says, referring to Peter Pastan's uber-popular pizzeria in Cleveland Park.

Dish of the Week: Gaulati Kebab at Masala Art
