  1. Komi's turned into Happy Gyro for June. It's like a really refined vegetarian diner (think Chicago Diner or the local Fare Well putting on airs). It continuously riffed on (at least my) childhood memories of favorite foods--sure, they're elevated here and fancier, but darn if they're still not comforting and deeply satisfying. There were about 8 dishes of varying sizes, with the main attraction being a choice between a gyro or a cheesesteak. My wife and I picked one of each and split them. Both were delicious and would be perfect replacements for Adams Morgan's post-drinking jumbo sli
  2. Hey folks - Just wanted to let you know that we received our first couple of flats today of Black Mission Figs. We will be spinning up a couple of flavors this weekend - Black Mission Fig sorbetto and Mascarpone gelato with a Black Mission Fig swirl. I spun up a test batch today of the sorbetto and it was AMAZING!!...not to be modest or anything, but you know. Also, I already posted this on another thread but we will be spinning 1 small batch of Olive Oil gelato...we plan on putting this one out on Friday. Check out our blog for more details. see ya! http://www.gelato-ology.blogspot.com/
  3. Isn't it remarkable how close "appealing" and "appalling" are? For those of you who don't want to pay $12 per pint for Jeni's (that's about how much it costs, right?), I'm going to make a suggestion: If I could name the 10-best pints of ice cream I've ever had in my entire life, all 10 of them would be from Happy Gyro (i.e. Komi). It costs $15 per pint, and that's a price you'll gladly pay. If you have any questions, please post them on the Komi thread (I'll eventually split Happy Gyro into its own thread). If I could name the 10-best pizzas I've ever had in my entire life, all
  4. I was up there this past weekend and made several trips to Capogiro as it was right around the corner from the hotel. One of my favorites was the grapefruit with campari. Also had some toasted almond, bittersweet chocolate, limoncello, burnt sugar, and fior di latte. If you are in Philly go, and go often. As a side note I had dinner at Buddakan and had a very good meal. Details to follow when I have more time...
  5. I spoke to one of the very enthusiastic owners yesterdayand he said they should be up and running in two weeks or so. He told me that they would be carrying some exotic flavors, a lot of sorbets, and very high-end coffee. I am very excited for this addition to the neighborhood!!
  6. Good news for those who spend time on the Mall. Excerpted from a Smithsonian staff email: "The Hirshhorn is pleased to announce opening of a Dolcezza Gelato & Coffee pop-up coffee shop, its first food and beverage service.... Dolcezza’s Hirshhorn pop-up is located on the Museum’s plaza and will serve daily-made gelato, rich pastries, and expertly crafted coffee drinks, pour-over coffee, cider and hot chocolate. Visitors to the space can also enjoy a new commissioned mural by DC-based artist Kelly Towles, inspired by the works of Yayoi Kusama. Currently open 9 AM to
  7. What do people think of Talenti gelati and sorbets? The first time I ever tried them, I thought they were about as good as any premium brand of ice-cream product on the market, and I *still* think they are, but has anyone noticed that they've become ubiquitous, and that you can even find them at Rite Aid? I suspect the reason for the massive increase in distribution is that the company (which was founded in 2003) was acquired by Unilever, the world's third-largest consumer goods company, with $60 billion in annual revenue, in Dec, 2014. Although Talenti is a subsidiary, they're still acc
  8. It's not exactly a restaurant, but you have a new place to put at the top of the Logan Circle Dining Guide: Pitango Gelato. My wife and I have passed this place numerous times on the way to the gym, resisting the urge to eat back the calories we just burned until today. Their list of flavors is similar to Dolcezza, if a little less creative; Pistachio, Bourbon Vanilla, Rhubarb, Creme Fraiche, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, etc. I got a small cup of the Bourbon Vanilla and Creme Fraiche and my wife got the Chocolate Chocolate Chip. All were delicious, with the Bourbon Vanilla being the star of the
  9. The Logan Circle store of Pitango Gelato opens today. Noah is a really nice guy, and the gelato is excellent. His dedication to getting the best ingredients is pretty amazing. He definitely scours the area for the best stuff he can get. For a little more about his process I wrote about it on DCist. The pistachio flavor is wonderful.
  10. I'm a little surprised there isn't a thread on this place yet as we have a few members who live in the neighborhood. Pretty much everyone I have talked to about this place really likes it, but unfortunately I am not seeing eye to eye with them. The first time I went I picked up the Create Your Own Calzone with tomato sauce, ham, mushrooms, and fresh mozzarellla. I don't know if it's the conveyor-belt-style oven or the overuse of pizza flour but the texture and surface of this was all wrong for me. It was cooked but had very little crunch outside of the very end of each side. The abundance
  11. Happy to report an opening instead of a closing: Casa Rosada Artisan Gelato just opened a week ago. They're located in a little pink house on the 100 block of South Payne, with a cozy enclosed patio in the rear. The owners are an Argentinian couple and their son - very nice people. They offer a variety of interesting flavors, including a few soy-based options and some fruit sorbets. The PBJ was very good - a (real) banana base with chunks of peanut butter. We also enjoyed a three-berry flavor, which was loaded with fruit. Several flavors feature alcohol, including the sambayon - Marsala/Port
  12. This is an interesting situation for me as moderator, and if we had an existing thread for Boss Hog's (we don't), I'd probably mark that as closed and give Simply Fresh a clean slate. Chef Rana (Rana is her first name) took over Boss Hogs in June, 2015, and changed it to Simply Fresh - both the interior and the patio look *nothing* like I remember Boss Hogs looking like, so unless I'm not remembering correctly, she really gave it a redo. I was driving in McLean, and was planning on going somewhere else, but I saw the sign for Simply Fresh, and it looked brand new to me, almost like some sort
  13. I'm embarrased to say that even after living across the street from Plush for the past 5 months, last night was my first trip to the gelato and coffee shop. I didn't try the coffee, which I should, but my gf and I did partake in the gelato. Their regular cup ($4.50) is three generous scoops of up to three flavors. They also sell by the pint and quart. All gelato is made in house and is made of whole milk, which they oddly pointed out twice during my ordering experience. They have quite a few flavors and I decided on chocolate hazelnut, toasted almond, and tiramasu. My gf went with raspberry a
