Menomale, a pizzeria in Brookland, is the kind of place where longtime lovers rekindle their flame over pizza and the soothing sounds of Etta James and Nat King Cole. The converted rowhouse is intimate but casual, with just 20 seats and a bar so small you can’t even sit at it. There’s a tiny patio outside, as well, but if you sit there you won’t get to walk through the kitchen and past the mosaic-tiled pizza oven. There's better Neapolitan pizza in the city, but it’s worth 20 bucks and pairs well with the Happy Hour wines. Plus they give you scissors to cut it if you get it unsliced.
