. . . Grabbed a Late-Night "Jumbo Slice"

Sunday, October 17, 2004; Page C02

. . . grabbed a late-night "jumbo slice." While there are many copycats in the city, the preeminent place to satiate your desire is the Pizza Mart in Adams Morgan, where one slice is almost as large as some competitors' whole pie. Hordes crowd in and around this storefront shop as the denouement of their night on the town. And while you might need a stomach full of your favorite libation to deal with the grease, nothing beats a piece with your friends, new and old.
