In the May 2008 issue of Southern Living, we highlighted an urban chic pizzeria in Washington, D.C., called Comet Ping Pong, where you can get top-notch pies and practice your topspin at one of their three ping pong tables. With great food and a laid-back atmopshere that appeals to 20-something hipsters and Baby Boomers alike, this neighborhood joint is perfect for a Friday night out with the kids and for date night. How many places do you know that fit into both categories?  Chuck E. Cheese this is not. 

And it seems the District locals agree. Washington City Paper, in its annual "Best of D.C." edition, gives kudos to Comet Ping Pong for Best Family Restaurant. Well-done, Comet.

Here are a few more photos from the restaurant:

    Small detail, though important to DC driving: parking was easy. Driving up CONN. Ave from the city, we took the first right after Comet and parked on a residential street.
    Other small detail: they have the most optically hidden bathrooms in town.

    Excellent point about the bathrooms. I walked past the pastoral murals 3 times before I ever thought to push on the wall!

    Mmmmmmm… so those aren’t crunchy mushroom caps in the pie? Errant shots, great toppings.

    The pizza pictures just made me hungry. Thin crust is my fave!

    It looks like an excellent place specially if it has some game to play when you are waiting for your food.
