D.C. Is Becoming Gelato-Town

And that's very good news. First, there was the opening of Dolcezza in Georgetown a few years ago. Dolcezza offers Argentine-style gelati. Sound strange? It shouldn't -- the Argentines positively love their ice cream. They also make chocolate/hazenut-filled churros that are yummy.

Now, as of several weeks ago, there is a new place called Pitango. It's located on P Street, N.W., between 14th and 15th Streets. I tried a few flavors there a few days ago, and the experience was pretty amazing.

I will (of course) be back to try other flavors, but I thought that both the Cinnamon and Bourbon Vanilla were excellent. They also offer several flavors of sorbet.
