Bethesda: Opening Information for Frank Pepe’s in Montgomery Mall

by Patrick Herron

Frank Pepe’s Pizzeria Napoletana will be opening its long awaited Montgomery Mall location in mid to late March, according to a social media post by WTOP’s Neal Augenstein.

Frank Pepe’s is located in the old Bobby’s Burger Palace location on the lower level across from Cheesecake Factory.

The Daily Meal has referred to Frank Pepe’s as “America’s finest pizzeria” and many publications have tabbed the pizza joints as a must-try in the New England area.

Per its website, Frank Pepe originated the New Haven-style thin crust pizza which he baked in bread ovens fired by coke. Coke is a byproduct of coal and it was used extensively until the late 1960’s when it became unavailable and hence coal was then put into use to fire the oven.

Pepe’s signature pizza, the White Clam Pizza, was most likely an organic inspiration by Frank Pepe; an idea born from the fact that Pepe’s also served raw little neck clams from Rhode Island, on the half shell, as an appetizer.
