As a Dolcezza fan, I’m passing along this release from Dolcezza Gelato, my personal favorite gelato (or ice cream) in the DC area.
Dolcezza Gelato is pleased to announce our state-of-the-art gelato factory + coffee lab factory at 550 Penn Street, NE, Washington, DC 20002, just steps from Union Market, will officially open to the public NEXT FRIDAY, March 21st.
Opening weekend hours:
Friday 3/21 – noon to 5 PM
Saturday 3/22 and Sunday 3/23 – noon to 7 PM
Since December 2013, the 4,000 square-foot warehouse space has been used to produce 300 seasonally driven flavors of gelato and sorbetto. Now, guests will have the opportunity to visit the factory to experience gelato and sorbetto as they are being churned daily, with five to six flavors in production at any given time.
Additionally, we will debut new creations including Thai Coconut Milk with chocolate chili crumble; Singing Dog Vanilla with rosemary brown sugar walnuts, as well as Valrhona Chocolate with homemade peanut butter topped with salted Hubs Virginia peanuts and whipped cream.
As part of the opening weekend festivities, Dolcezza will be offering free public tours on Friday, March 21st, Saturday, March 22nd, and Sunday, March 23rd at 2 PM and 4 PM. Guests will also receive half priced pre-packaged pints of gelato and sorbetto.
