Power to the people MAN!

As a follow up to the first crusade, the esteemed Ms. Kuller has offered to refund my friend's class and change the course description. WE WON!!!!! Therefore I am taking down the post since it would just be petty to keep that hanging out on the internet.

On an unrelated note, yesterday was my birthday. When J asked me where i wanted to go for our "just the two of us birthday," I promptly said "2 Amys!" Saturday, we will be hosting the DC Craft Corner Deathmatch, complete with boorish host and scowling assistant. An avid reader of both egullet and chowhound, I am somewhat perturbed by the stories of bad service at 2 Amys. We might be really lucky, but we've never had a problem both times we went. Even thought it was a zoo, we were seated in 15 minutes and had constant attention from our waitstaff. It was the same prompt, considerate, friendly service we had the first time.

Now onto the food. It being my birthday, I decided to be a little decadent and order a shot of limoncello to sip on. Good call, because it highlighted the summery meal we ordered. Of course we were going to order the foodgasmic Pipe Dreams goat cheese and fig jam and the suppli di telefono. The name of which doesn't describe the luscious balls of rich gooey cheeseness. As we had a tapas party earlier this month complete with serrano ham, we decided to forgo the cured meats and ggo with the roasted eggplant with buffalo mozarella balls. It was lovely and summery but I think mozarella is such a mello cheese hat you can't go gaga over it. But the pizza we did go gaga over. We got the norcia pizza which is the basic pizza with 2 Amys pepperoni and roasted peppers. I love this crust. It's solid and crunchy without turning into a cracker and still bready.

For dessert I went with the panna cotta and J had the lemon sorbet. As Ina Garten would say, "best of class." And then we amended it to be "best in show."

Feels good to topple evil, doesn't it?

Next time you're at 2 Amy's, try the baked meatballs. They're so good. I miss that place!

We were considering that but Ugly Mug has such great meatballs on their pizza we wanted to go with something more 2 Amys-esque.
