Del Ray Pizzeria
2218 Mount Vernon Ave (at E Del Ray Ave)
Alexandria, VA 22301
Don't let Del Ray fool you: while the pizzas here are definitely delicious -- specialty pies using both thin, deep, or gluten-free crust alongside market-driven ingredients -- the kitchen also excels at apps like fried heirloom tomatoes, nachos, gazpacho, and gourmet sandwiches. The casual eatery boasts a solid brunch (Funfetti pancakes, anyone?), but it's primarily a happy hour haunt thanks to multiple flat screen TVs and a well-stocked list of regional draft beers.
