It’s not that a slice of pizza bigger than your head doesn’t always sound good; it’s just that it’s consumption is slightly more justifiable after a night out on U Street (especially after that last round of tequila shots). In a sea of late-night eateries, Pizza Mart, the storied Adams Morgan pizzeria whose claim to fame is the original Jumbo Slice, stands out for posters screaming “Original!” and “Featured on the Travel Channel!” and its line of intoxicated revelers pouring out onto 18th Street. It’s worth a visit, even if the cheese is a little more rubbery than you would have liked.
