Philly continues to blow up on the food scene as another successful chain moves into Center City. Today The D.C.-founded chain of community-focused pizza shops. &pizza,  known for its devoted ampersand-tattooed employees (The Tribe the owner Michael told me the, handmade pies, and craft sodas. It’s at 1430 Walnut Street or as we like to refer to it as The Cheesecake Factory building. It’s on 15th Street closest to Bookbinders’ er I mean Applebees.

Last night I attended the VIP sneak preview party, and had too much delicious pizza. I have some pixs below, but first the important news. FREE PIZZA On opening day at 11AM, free pies will be given to the first 215 guests in line (a nod to the 215 area code). The first five guests in line who request a tattoo of the brand’s signature ampersand, will receive it gratis, in addition to free pizza for a year. The brand makes the same offer to its employees – the &pizza Tribe – and to date more than 60 Tribe members have signed their allegiance on skin. (It is a cool tattoo I think, hmm pie for a year, it’s tempting.)

THE MENU

&pizza prides itself on serving up experiences in addition to fresh pizza. Guests have the
opportunity to craft their own individual pie (with unlimited ingredients) or choose from nine
signature pizzas, such as the meat heavy Maverick, the egg-topped Farmer’s Daughter, or the
Gnarlic (exactly what you think, but so much better), each one with its own unique flavor profile.
The pizza shop uses fresh ingredients and works with local producers to create its signature
and seasonal menu of pizzas, snacks, craft sodas and artisanal teas. Guests can order ahead
on the app or dine-in. &pizza has created a product that is distinctly their own, and opportunity
for its employees and customers to be part of something greater that gives back to the
community, from its innovative hiring practices to its &CHARITY program.

This is the brand’s 17th shop and first outside the D.C. area. For &pizza, Philadelphia embodies  what their trademark ampersand has come to be represent – a “go anywhere, do everything”  lifestyle.  &pizza also commits itself to each and every new neighborhood it joins. Every shop  is designed to reflect the neighborhood it serves. For &pizza Walnut, the brand partnered with  local architectural firm [BOX]WOOD to bring the shop to life with dramatic Philly flair.
