O.K., I need a bit of help.
Possibly by Thursday, January 17th.
First, a bit of background.
For those of you who have been in DC for five years or more, I suspect the name A.V. Ristorante is familiar to you.
It was a sketchy looking place from the outside (and not much better looking inside) at the corner of NY Ave. and 6th St.NW, where you could get the best white pizza ever made and also the best pizza I’ve ever had.
It didn’t matter what else they served, but if pizza wasn’t your idea of a good meal, and it was the right season, their sauteed soft shell crabs with garlic pasta (you needed to ask for the garlic pasta which was better than the very good red sauced one that usually came with the soft shells) was always good.
