But now the tantalizing promise of pizza is wafting through the streets of Mount Pleasant. The restaurant will be reopened with the same name, the same pizza recipe, but with new owners and a modifed menu, according to Washington City Paper.

To do my journalistic duty, I’ll test out the food tonight and let you know if Matt and Lenka Culbertson, the new proprieters, have done the memory of Radius justice.

Come join me for a slice; just don’t try to call for a reservation. The number listed on a new Facebook page still goes to an old recording from the previous owners saying they’re on vacation.
