Himitsu, Timber Pizza on Bon Appetit's 50 Best New Restaurants list; Himitsu also on Eater's Top 12


Wow, our area is getting some more love from critics. Bon Appetit, which named Bad Saint the #2 best new restaurant in the country last year, has given some plaudits to two spots on Upshur this year: Timber Pizza Co. and Himitsu. They put both among the 50 best new restaurants in the country, along with other DC spot Pineapple and Pearls on Barracks Row.

Himistu also made Eater.com's 12 Best New Restaurants list, along with spots in San Francisco, Knoxville, TN and more.

Himitsu is a Japanese spot where Cappy's Crabs and Crane & Turtle were before at 828 Upshur Street NW, and Timber Pizza Co. is a former food truck with a wood-fired oven at 809 Upshur, which was formerly a small church.

Pretty awesome to see this kind of praise for more local spots. In a few weeks Bon Appetit will announce what the top restaurants are from the list.

Any favorite dishes at either spot?
