After our lazy day on Wednesday, T.C., Karlee, and I headed out to grab a bite to eat for dinner. We heard that Delia’s Brick Oven Pizza was the place to go in the area and we were all craving pizza. We started out with warm pita chips and some kind of tomato basil butter.
We ordered sautéed calamari for our appetizer. They offer sautéed and fried, but we went with the healthier version. It was sautéed in olive oil with sun dried tomatoes, garlic, kalamata olives, and dried lemon with pesto genovese. All the flavors were spot on and it tasted fantastic. It always amazes me how chefs can create a dish with so many different ingredients that you’d never think would go well together and make it taste amazing.
We ordered a salad to split too. We chose the roasted walnut and gorgonzola salad. It came with mixed salad greens, crumbled gorgonzola, seasoned and blanched grape tomatoes, spiced roasted walnuts tossed in a raspberry vinaigrette.
I loved everything about this salad. It reminded me of the salad I ordered at Draught in Charlotte. Of course I picked off all cherry tomatoes…
We went with just a plain cheese brick oven pizza. To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever had brick oven pizza before. It was definitely in the top pizzas! Sauce, cheese, and crust…perfection! It was another success in D.C.!
