The vibrant Atlas District in DC is home to all manners of visionaries, philosophers, and free thinkers. In that respect, it shares some qualities with 1760s Massachusetts, where the Sons of Liberty held their secret meetings under a “liberty tree,” exchanging the ideas that would eventually lead to American independence. Today, DC’s The Liberty Tree restaurant serves as a different sort of neighborhood gathering spot — with less revolutionary fervor, and more pizza!
Owner Scott Hamilton and Chef Graig Gluflling offer a range of wood-fired pizzas. Try a traditional margherita-style pizza with fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce, or pile on a custom combination of toppings like sausage, mushrooms, and olives. Pizza’s the main draw here, but if you prefer seafood, you’ll also find dishes like lobster rolls and clam chowder on the menu. Add a craft brew to your order and as you bite into your meal you’ll see why this place has become a favorite among locals.
