It is exciting when we are mentioned in a national or regional publication. We feel honored at the acknowledgment and humbled to be in the company of so many people across the country who share the same passion for great food as we do, and as our visitors have come to love and expect.

But we never want to forget, it is you, our customers who matter the most, to each and every one of us. Our mission is to make you happy and excited to return with others. We will not lose focus of that.

Last Friday we were fortunate to be written up by People in their Food section. People teamed up with Zagat to produce, “a list of the most popular restaurants in the U.S. (including Washington, D.C.)— from local staples to renowned destinations.”

We would like to share that list with you and encourage you to explore the People post and learn about other places to visit around the US.

Pepe’s in the national news

Getting some limelight in the national news is always exciting for Pepe’s. Last week we were honored to be in two publications, People Food and The New York Times.

“The Most Popular Restaurant in Every State (and Washington, D.C.)”

In her New York TImes article titled, “It’s Canned Tomato Season. Here’s What You Need to Know,” Julia Moshin shared  Pepe’s time-honored tradition of selecting tomatoes for our pizzas. Each year as fresh tomatoes reach their peak flavor, the tradition of selecting the best tomatoes is carried forward by Frank Pepe’s family. Tomatoes from several favorite fields in Italy are considered for flavor, texture, and density.

As Seen in the New York Times article by Julia Moskin.

The selection process is critical as our tomatoes are not cooked nor are they seasoned, letting the tomato flavor shine through. Julia Moskin visited Frank Pepe’s grandsons Francis Rosselli and Gary Bimonte while they carried out the tradition of taste testing tomatoes.
