&pizza on Barracks Row, March 26, 2015It looks as though the &pizza shop coming to Barracks Row might take a little while longer to open.

The forthcoming pizzeria at 405 8th St. SE ran into some “confusion” with the D.C. Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA), according to a letter uncovered by Washington Business Journal reporter Michael Neibauer.

“&pizza regrets the confusion and miscommunication that resulted in our beginning the construction without the requisite permits and not in accordance with the terms of the original BZA order,” reads the letter, which is addressed to BZA chair Marnique Heath. “We have moved past working with those associated with that decision and have paid the fines related to the infraction.

We contacted the pizza company for comment earlier this morning. &pizza CEO and co-Founder Michael Lastoria said the company “filed a minor modification with the BZA that’s more advantageous to our neighbors on Capitol Hill.

“With their full support, we expect to be back under construction shortly,” Lastoria added.
