Pizzeria plays with (coal) fire
Coal Fire could be just another pizza joint. But its location — albeit storefront — in the Ellicott City development of Shipley's Grant gives it a certain cachet. So does the fact that the pizzas, which you can see being prepared in the open kitchen, are cooked in a coal-fired oven. Hence the name, which, as it turns out, is the moniker for a trio of eateries in the area. One in Gaithersburg, the one in Ellicott City, which opened in April of this year, and the newest edition, in Frederick, which premiered in late June.
