Decent restaurant between Metro Center and Gallery Place. Solid draft selection including Pi Common brewed for them by Schlafly, in case you want/need the tick. Deep dish pizza was tasty. Service was pretty poor. Wouldnít go out of my way to visit but worth a try if passing by.

Probably the best craft beer spot in downtown Washington. The tap list rarely changes much -- Piís list is kind of antithetical to the whole spirit of the craft beer scene -- but itís definitely a strong list with a broad mix of styles. (Schlafly is massively over-represented because of the ownerís St. Louis connection... which is kind of a bummer because Charleville, Perennial, Urban Chestnut and especially Second Shift are all better Missouri-based brewers than Schlafly.) Service can be great or it can be completely absent. Very good pizza, but go thin-crust > deep-dish. Good prices by DC standards. My downtown go-to.
UPDATE: 3/27/14: What happened? The almost-never-changing beer list has long been a problem, and as ever too many of the selections are rote (Stone IPA? All that Schlafly? Yawn.) But over the last couple weeks Pi has routinely been out of big chunks of their own list. And the service, always bad, has reached new lows. The food is still very good and reasonably priced, but as a beer destination: Itís time for a big re-think of this place.

I went to District of Pi after going to Snallygaster. Probably not the best idea - lots of beer, followed by a lot of deep dish pizzas, one that was like a tomato breadbowl (not bad, just so much acid reflux). Lots of St. Louis beers - apparently (from what someone who grew up there said) - itís based out of there so thereís a lot of Schlafly beers on tap. Draft list is pretty good for a restaurant in this part of downtown. Food was tasty, and service was pretty good.

Really liked this place. Would come back to try the food. Pretty solid beer selection and prices werenít too bad. Service was great. Was empty when I was there, but would be fun to go back when busier.

The pizza is very good. The beer selection is decent. The price is a little high.

The pizza is tasty, and their St. Louis ties mean this is the best place in DC to get Schlafly brews. Other than the Schlafly, however, you wonít find much unusual beer among the 24 taps.

Essentially a sit-down, overpriced version of the pizza place that was in this location before. Pizza was decent- not as good as Pizzeria Paradiso. Tap list was fairly large. About 20+. Seems to have an affinity for Schlafly beers; about 8 of them on the tap list. Other stuff were amber lagers and pretty much the craft version of "pizza" beers. Anchor Steam, SNPA, and a handful of Irish nitro type stouts. The tap list should be updated online so check it out before you walk over here from Chinatown metro station.

Whether people like deep dish pizza or not, this place also offers thin crust too. The place itself is nice, I donít know if I would go to a night here, but for a food place it has a pretty solid draft list.
The place itself is really cool looking.

This place has a much better tap selection than Iron Horse, and way better hygiene than RFD. Four different Schlafly choices when I was there, plus a handful of stuff I hadnít had. Friendly, efficient staff. Thin pizza was mediocre, but the deep dish looked good, and properly done (cheese on the botom). My top choice if you have to brave the tourist and touter crowd in Chinatown. Downside: itís pricey, even for DC.

I was walking down F street and saw the taps through the window. I decided to take a dinner break and stop in. Very nice selection, 24 taps of ALL craft beer- Bells, Schlafly, Founders, Smuttnose, etc. Rotating taps and seasonals as well. Semi- trendy vibe and ambiance. I ordered the thin crust pizza, and it was pretty tasty (great crust if you like it crispy). Bartender was friendly and attentive. Now on to my criticism. My glasses were not totally clean, which is not good for a beer forward restaurant. There should be no carbonation bubbles clinging to the side of the glass, and there were on both my pints. Second, itís a bit pricey- but I guess this is the norm for DC. But since I am from out of town, I am gauging this against the rest of the country, and I do a lot of beer traveling. I had two pints during happy hour, and a small 12" pizza. Total? $31.50.Ouch! Good thing I was able to put that on an expense report. Overall, I enjoyed my visit and I would definitely revisit if I am in the area. And if you are a ticker doing a beer crawl, Gordon Biersch is right around the corner, and Capital City Brewery is a few blocks away.
